Students Given Option In 
Fifth Course Requirement 

The present sophomore fifth course requirement was made optional 
for either the sophomore or junior year for all men enrolled in the 
KOTC program at the faculty meeting held Monday afternoon. 

Accepted at the meeting was the resignation of Assistant Professor- 
31 Ait Albert S. Roe. This resignation will take effect at the close 
af the current academic year. 

Changes were also made in the requirements for the Dean's List. 
In order to be eligible for the list now the student must have a "B" 
average but may have one"C". 

However no man can have any 
grade lower than a "C" and still 
be eligible. The requirement ap- 
plies to all classes but all do not 
receive the same privileges. 
Juniors and seniors get unlimited 
cuts from being on the Dean's list 
but only those sophomores having 
straight "A's" receive unlimited 

Freshmen meeting the Dean's 
List requirements will get four 
cuts in each course rather than 
the usual three. Sophomores pass- 
ing the requirements but not re- 
ceiving all "A's" will be allowed 
five cuts a semester in each course 
rather than four. 

Can Be Withdrawn 

The privilege can be withdrawn 
by the Dean in case of complaint 
by any instructor. This require- 
ment is in effect now. 

The effect of these changes is to 
enlarge the Dean's List as an 
honor. Freshmen and Sophomores 
gain a slight privilege from these 

It was also decided to establish 
more stringent regulations govern- 
ing the dropping of courses. How- 
ever the change that will be made 
and the time limit that will be set 
were not determined. 

Art Changes 

Changes in the Art curriculum 
were also made at the meeting. 
Art 12 has been abolished and the 
material from the course has been 
incorporated into the two semester 
course Art 7, 8. The first semester 
of this course will consist of 
modern painting and sculpture, 
while modern architecture will be 
Riven in the second semester. The 
first part of the second semester 
course will lead up to twentieth 
century architecture. 

The most important change in 
the Art curriculum is that the 
studio course Art 9, 10 wWl agoin 
be given next year. In this course 
the students do iheir own part- 
ing in the studio provided and .he 
course enrollment has to be limit- 
ed to twenty men. However ail in- 
terested are urged to enroll. . 

Oriental Art which is now listed 
in the catalog will not be offered 
next year.

Influence Of Confucianism Traced 
By Dr. Mei In Opening Lecture 

Before an interested crowd of 
over 200 people. Dr. Yi-Pao Mei 
opened his series of three Tallman 
Foundation Lectures on "Chinese 
Communism and the History 
Thought" with a talk on "Con- 
fucianism and its Influence oi> 
Chinese Life and Culture." 
Cultural Unity Described 

After a brief introduction by 
President Coles. Dr. Mei explained 
his reasons for thinking that Con- 
fucian philosophy had a direct 
bearing on the future success of 
Communism in China. He said 
that whether or not Communism 
lasts depend upon "the seeds of 
Communism" and "the sqjl of 
Chinese intellect". Because of 
close Chinese cultural unity over 
the centuries, the ideas of Con- 
fucius still shape Chinese mental 
attitude today. 

Dr. Mei then gave a brief ac- 
count of Confucius' life, stressing 
his piety and wisdom. Confucius 
at 70 said that he could follow his 
hearts desire and still be within 
the right. 

Of Confucius' teachings, Dr. Mei 

stated that the most important 
was the doctrine of "jen" or 
benevolent, "human-hearted" love 
of all men. Only if one expresses 
this benevolence in "li", or ap- 
propriate decorum, can he hope to 
approach the "chun-tzu". or 
superior man, who has no perplexi- 
ties or 'anxieties.. 

Dr. Mei summed up the Con- 
fucian conception of the ideal 
government in the words of his 
disciple Mencius, who as early as 
300 B.C. said that "heaven sees 
as the people see." Combined 
with this democratic ideal was 
the idea that the most capable 
people, those with most character 
and knowledge, should govern. 
Practical application of this idea 
was made as early as the fifth 
century A.D., when a kind of civil 
service was instituted in China. 

After a brief reference to the 
admiration for Confucius on 
the part of such liberal thinkers 
as Liebniz and Voltaire, Dr. Mei 
closed his lecture with a summary 
of Confucianism today. He said

The Maine Citizenship 
Clearing House Program 
Established At College 

The Maine Citizenship Clearing 
House, a program to encourage the 
State's young college students 
and graduates to participate ac- 
tively in political affairs, has been 
established with 'headquarters at 
Bowdoin College. 

The announcement was made 
jointly today by Judge Arthur T. 
Vanderbilt, Chief Justice of the 
Supreme Court of New Jersey and 
chairman of the National Citizen- 
ship Clearing House program, and 
by President James S. Coles of 

The Citizenship Clearing House 
was originated at New York Uni- 
versity in 1947 by Judge Vander- 
bilt, who at that time was Dean 
of the NYU School of Law. It is 
intended to stimulate political in- 
terest, especially at the commun- 
ity level, among talented young 

Pelletier To Direct 

Professor Lawrence L. Pelletier, 
Director of the Bureau of Research 
for Municipal Government at 
Bowdoin, will direct the Maine 

The Maine Citizenship Clearing 
House will serve as a liason agency 
between the state's political lead- 
ers and teachers of political and 
social science in Maine's colleges 
and universities, Professor Pel- 
letier said Sunday. 

He pointed out that the Maine 
program is the outgrowth of a con- 
ference of participation of col- 
lege graduates in political life at 
Bowdoin last December 5 and 6. 
The meeting brought together col- 
lege administrators, political lead- 
ers, and teachers of political sci- 
ence throughout the state. 
Responsibility Of College** 

Commenting on the importance 
of the program's concepts, Pro- 
fessor Pelletier said: "Education 
for citizenship is a serious respon- 
sibility which the colleges are 
anxious to fulfill creditably. If 
young college men and women are 
to be prepared and encouraged to 
enter politics, it is obvious that 
the colleges must develop closer 
relations with public officials and 
party leaders, that they must util- 
ize the experience and know-how 
of the practitioners, and that they 
must make their courses in poli- 
tics more realistic and dynamic." 

Future plans for the Maine 
Citizenship Clearing house will be 
announced within the next few 
weeks. •

Stearns Named Head 
Of Bowdoin Glee Club 

Elected President of the Glee 
Club at their annual elections 
Tuesday night was Gordon W. 
Stearns, Jr. '54, recent winner of 
the Franklin D. Roosevelt Cup. 

Manager of the club is Richard 
C. Gibson '54, while the Librarian 
for the coming year will be Allen 
G. Wright '54. Assisting Wright 
will be Terry D. Stenberg '56. 

Also named was a committee of 
representatives from each of the 
fraternity houses and the In- 


Describing the hazing period at Bowdoin as a perennial problem. 
Dean Nathaniel C. Kendrick pointed out that the type of hazing is 
more important than its timing in a recent interview with the ORIENT. 
The Dean, commenting on the proposal to change the fraternity 
initiations to later in the year, stated that any move to hold these 
initiations at a later date would be of - little use unless it was accom- 
panied by an improvement in the way the hazing program was, car- 
ried, out. 

ed that the problem of 'hazing was 
always going up and down. Ex- 
plaining that time lost during the 
fall to hazing often could be very 
harmful, the Dean said that stu- 
dents entering Bowdoin came with 
very uneven preparation. Since the 
College assumes in their work that 
they are all on the same footing, 
some can coast while others have 
some difficulty in catching up if 
any time is lost, he added. 

Time consumed in something 
such as a quest could easily get 
someone hopelessly sunk, Dean 
Kendrick said. He pointed out that 
the missing of a week's work in 
mathematics could often place the 
student in an unenviable position. 

Distinction Made Clear 

Dean "Kendrick made it clear 
that he was concerned with hazing 
only, stating that he was in most 
ways in favor of the rushing 
system. He said that Bowdoin's 
rushing system had the virtues of 
simplicity and speed, and he added 
that there couldn't be much com- 
plaint of any "crookedness" since 
the system is not tied down with 

The hazing period was another 
matter, the Dean said. Student 
difficulties derived from the end 
of rushing to initiation, he explain- 
ed, came as a combination of 
events — the opening and begin- 
nig of College, the football season, 
and the hazing itself. 

received plenty of complaints 
every year from parents, said that 
one might put it this way, "Why 
take them into College and then 
start them off under such serious 
handicaps and distractions?" He 
pointed out that difficulties often 
arose from just worrying and 
thinking about hazing during this 
period. The freshman, although 
not actually burdened by hazing as 
far as time went, could easily be 
upset "by what his mind is on," 
the Dean explained. 

Some Restraint Shown 
Although Dean Kendrick said 
that some houses have emphasized 
considerable restraint, he mention- 

The Dean told the ORIENT that 

T . v n„„„ ° »;«„:.,„ *u„* ».„r som c objectionable things had

been eliminated from the hazing 

period, but he warned that an acci- 
dent involving some phase of haz- 
ing could* bring an attack, an at- 
tack which the College could have 
some difficulty in answering. 

A General Trend 

Dean Kendrick stated that 
there was a general trend away 
frpm the interference caosed by 
hazing. He said that the least that 
could be done was to substitute a 
more constructive form of activity 
such as "help-week" instead of 
hell-week." The Dean pointed out 
that the .National Interfraternity 
Council this year went on record

Elliot Lawrence and his Orchestra have been selected by the Ivy 
Weekend Committee, composed of members of the Junior Class, to 
play at the annual formal dance to be held this year on Friday night 
May 22. 

Allen F. Hetherington Jr., President of the Class of 1954, heads 
the central committee while sub-chairmen will be working under him. 
Horace A. Hildreth, Class Treasurer, will be in charge of arranging 
all Ivy Day ceremonies. These usually include the reading of a Class 
Poem, a speech by a faculty member, and the giving of awards to 
outstanding students. 

Heading the various committees are Barrett C. Nichols, Dance 
Committee; Robert W. Pillsbury, Decorations; Albert F. Lilley, Busi- 
ness'Manager; and Gordon W. Stearns, Band Committee. 

The ticket price for the dance 
has been set by the committee at 
$6.00. This figure is $2.00 above 
that of the Winter Houseparties, 
but it is only slightly higher than 
those of previous formals. Also set 
is the time of the dance on May 
22. It will run from 9 p.m. to 1 
I a.m. 

The price, time of dance, and 
final approval was decided at a 
meeting of the committee Monday 
night, April 13. 

Chairman of the central com- 
mittee Hetherington told the 
ORIENT yesterday that he was 
very pleased with the work of the 
committee and with the selection 
of the band. He mentioned that he 
had the fullest confidence that the 
remaining arrangements would be 
made as easily. 

Although full details on the 
motif for the decorations were not 
yet available, one suggestion was 
that of an Atlantic Seacoast scene 
with a lighthouse, lobster pots, 
and similiar objects. 

In this plan the ceiling of the 
gym, where the dance will be held, 
would be of blue, gray, and green 
which would represent the sky and 
water .

Request For Delayed 
Initiation Discussion 
Made In Student Council 

A request to members of the 
Student Council by Council Vice- 
President Richard B. Salsman '54 
that the question of delayed In 
itiation be returned to the houses 
for discussion at tonight's meet 
ings was made at the Council's 
weekly session Monday. 

The proposal to delay initiation 
until after Christmas or the be- 
ginning of the second semester 
was originally proposed by the 
Beta Theta Pi representative, 
taken to the various fraternity 
houses for discussion, and finally 
soundly defeated in a Council vote. 
However, at the last meeting be- 
fore the spring vacation it was re- 
ported that Dean Nathaniel C. 
Kendrick wanted further discus- 
sion on the issue. 

A proposal made by Delta Sigma 
representative Thomas Otis, Jr. 
'54 which would enable delinquent 
fraternity bills, when necessary, to 
be collected by the College was 

discussed briefly.' The bonding of

Glee Club Tour Rated Success; 
Trip Includes Dances, Sightseeing 

By Timothy 

The 1952-53 season of the Bow- 
doin College Glee Club was 
brought to a climax during Spring 
vacation by the annual Spring 
tour. Leaving Brunswick at noon, 
Friday, March 27, the bus and 
seven autos proceeded to Worces- 
ter, Massachusetts. Here the first 
concert was given at Becker Junior 
College, situated near Worcester 
Polytechnical Institute. 

The concert was a great success 
and the audience showed no re- 
straint in applauding. This gave 
the Club a good boout and proved 
to be a good beginning for the 
tour. An excellent write-up of the 
concert appeared in the Worcester 
paper the following morning. 

After the last number on the 
program, Professor Tillotson con- 
ducted the Club in "Yamma Man", 
which has become the Club's vic- 
tory cry and is often heard several 
times after a good concert. 

Many of the men attended a 
dance after the concert where they 
were entertained by the girls from 
Becker Junior College. The Club 

G. Greene '54 

was well provided for afterwards 
by individual families and various 
fraternities on the "Tech'' campus. 

The "Big City" 

Thursday morning the well- 
rested group embarked for New 
York City. After checking in at 
the Biltmore Hotel. Professor Til- 
lotson's "lumberjacks" settled 
down to accustom themselves to 
the big city. (The title was given 
them by a loyal Smith student 
earlier in the year.) 

That night, the Club gave it's 
second concert, in Rutherford, New 
Jersey. The audience again ac- 
corded the group warm applause. 
That night the Club was free to 
enjoy their stay in New York City. 

The following morning the club 
journeyed up the Hudson to West 
Point Military Academy. They 
were guided around the campus 
that afternoon, and that night 
dinner was served "army style" in 
' West Point's massive dining hall.

College, Fraternity Relations Close 

Although known as a fraternity college, the close relation- 
ship at Bowdoin between the fraternities and the College itself 
is not always understood. Attempts to distinguish and separate 
their interests can usually only end in failure, so close is this 

In many colleges the fraternity system is but an appendage. 
In these institutions fraternity memberships may be held by a 
minority of the students, while the influence of the fraternities 
on the social, academic, and financial sides of the college may 
be of little or no importance. The administrative officials of 
these colleges are often able to minimize or forget the fraterni- 
ties in making their decisions. 

This is not the situation at Bowdoin where the fraternity 
system constitutes one of the major parts of the College, a part 
which is withdrawn would leave Bowdoin but as a shell of its 
present self. One can say that the College provides the instruc- 
tion, while the fraternities provide a base for the social life. 
I his simplified distinction quickly breaks down. 

The administration insists that the fraternities follow certain 
rules of conduct, and it depends on them to maintain and to 
improve the name of Bowdoin before, parents, the alumni, and 
the public at large. The administration looks for the fraternities 
to provide much of the spark necessary for a student body if 
it is to benefit most greatly from the education offered. The 
administration relies on the fraternities for sleeping and dining 
accommodations. Without the fraternity houses Bowdoin would 
require approximately five additional dormitories. The housing 
of competitors for the Bowdoin Interscholastic Track Meet in 
the Houses is another example of this dependency. 

Not being a one sided proposition, the dependency of the 
fraternities on the administration is as strong in as many ways. 
The College collects the room and board bills and operates a 
centralized dining service for the houses. The administration 
and the fraternities are connected closely financially with the 
College now holding the mortgage on five fraternity houses. 
No new fraternities could be recognized at Bowdoin without 
administrative approval. Even the rushing strategy of a fra- 
ternity is determined indirectly by the number of students ac- 
cepted by the Admissions Department each year. 

In the consideration of various problems, whether they 
are introduced by the fraternities or by the administration, this 
close relationship must be remembered at all times. 

Martin C, Mitchell '54 
Missing After Accident 
In Merrymeeting Bay 

Martin t\ Mitchell '54. son of 
Mr. and Mj-s. Caleb Mitchell of 
Bowdoinhara\__has been missing 
since his disappearance on the 
Androscoggin River on Tuesday, 
March 31. 

Mitchell and his brother-in-law, 
Ro\ ton A. Browne, were attempt- 
ing to salvage some logs in the 
swollen river near Merrymeeting 
Bay above tho entrance to the 
Kennebec River. When the pair 
failed to return, that evening a 
search plane was sent out the fol- 
lowing morning. Mitchell's boat 
was discovered overturned several 
miles from where the two men 
were last seen. 

As yet no trace of either man 
has been found. Searching parties, 
led by Ransom B. Kelly, another 
brother-in-law, and Clayton 
Mitchell, brother of Martin, have 
been carried on ever since the 
tragedy took place. Members of 
Mitchell's fraternity, Psi Upsilon, 
have been aiding in the search. 

Mitchell, a resident of Bowdoin- 
ham, graduated from Brunswick 
High School as President of the 
class of 1950. He was also Presi- 
dent of the Student Council. At 
Bowdoin Mitchell was a laboratory 
assistant in the Chemistry Depart- 
ment, and was serving as house 
steward for Psi Upsilon.

Tap Day, one of Yale's most [ attract criticism 

famous traditions, has come to an ' anti-Society nature, 
end after a colorful 75 year his- 
tory. On this May day all Yale 
University juniors gathered to 
await the whack on the back that 
would indicate election to one of 
Yale's Senior Societies. Scull & 
Bones, Scroll & Key, and the other 
four 15 member groups will have 
to devise a substitute for the well 
known w,hack of the cane, their 
way of pledging new members.

The Meddiebempsters leave for 
Mt. Holyoke this weekend to ap- 
pear on the program of the girls' 
Junior Prom. The Meddies will 
be on stage with Ralph Stewart 
and his band and the Mt. Holyoke 
Junior Class singing group, the 
Treble Tones. They will perform, 
says the Mount Holyoke News, 
"in a land of pink and silver cir- 
cus tents," supplemented by "a 
huge clown, a crystal ball, and a 
merry-go-round effect with life 
size horses". 

This gay atmosphere contrasts 

scribed the experience this way: } considerably to the one which pre- 
"The morning was interminable, | vailed at Mt. Holyoke at the turn 
a horror. They did not even joke Q f the century. In a column en- 

about the approaching ordeal. No 
one was so sure of election but 
that the possible rejection of some 
chum cast its gloom over the day." 
The juniors accepted the cere- 
mony until the post war years. 
Then the student group adopted 
an openly sceptical attitude to- 
wards the process. Many under- 
graduates believed the social 
niceities ol" the Societies point- 
less and at times ludicrous. 

The Senior Societies took the 
hint and recently abolished Tap 
Day. Any new system of election 
will probably be designated not to 

Better Hazing Would Solve Timing 

Despite a decided improvement in hazing at Bowdoin in 
recent years, the manner in which it is carried out still is a prob- 
lem, a problem which the fraternities will have to deal with. An 
advance to a better and a more objective hazing program has 
already been made here. Projects carried out by two houses 
last fall are perhaps the most obvious and publicized examples. 
The fraternities have more frequently realized that it is their 
responsibility to safeguard the interests of the College and to 
aid the freshmen in their period of adjustment. 

, The problem still remains a major one, however. The 

Dean reports that each year he receives a substantial number 
of protests from parents of freshmen. An accident resulting 
from some hazing activity, as unavoidable and as unintentional 
as it might be, could bring a large amount of unfavorable and 
adverse publicity. 

One proposed solution has been that the date of initia- 
tion be moved to the start of the second semester. Proponents 
have said that it would enable the freshmen to adjust easier, 
that it would make hazing more relaxed. The idea cannot be 
dismissed without thought, but it is hard to see that this would 
be a desirable move. It would not necessarily change the type 
of hazing which is the heart of the problem. Neither would it 
do away with the strain and the nervous tension for the fresh- 
men accompanying this period. 

The solution is to create a hazing program which will 
command public respect and approval, respect and approval 
which will far exceed any scattered criticism which might arise. 
This revamped hazing program must aid those men who have 
the hardest time adjusting, even though some of these men 
would have difficulty under any situation. This program must 
be lived up to both in letter and spirit. 

titled "Much Ado" and editor de- 
scribes the conditions which exist- 
ed in 1900, beginning by quoting 
the then president: "social' life 
should be distinctly a means to an 
end and not an end in itself; a 
recreation relieving the strain, 
rather than adding to It, an amuse- 
ment, not a business . . ." 

The following regulations were 
presumably intended to "relieve 
the strain" on the administration. 
". . . all social entertainments 
ended by 9:40 p.m.; que dance a 
year was given to which men were 
invited, (the Junior Prom), and 
chaperons were required for driv- 
ing with men, for all affairs at 
Amherst or any other men's col- 
lege, and for receiving men in 
.society rooms." 

A more liberal trend was noted 
during the First World War when 
the rules were relaxed and the 
girls came into their own. At 
one time "the wearing of men's 
costume's on stage" was allowed 
and "knickers appeared on the 
campus for the first time." 

But is was a mere 25 years ago 
that a Mt. Holyoke professor had 
the courage to refute the state- 
ment that students are: "over in- 
dulged young animals, expensively 
clothed, much given to love mak- 
ing, and drinking, good natured 
and carefree, generous and reck- 
less, always in hot water and 
never getting scolded."

memories of Monday afternoon on 
Pickard Field. 

The concert was well received by 
j the cadets, who seemed to favor 
the lighter numbers on the pro- 
gram. "Army Blue" was sung by 
the Club with a portion of the 
West Point Glee Ciub to close the 
concert. Afterwards, light refresh- 
ments were served with entertain- 
ment by the Meddies and the Fors- 
berg-Graham piano duo. Accord- 
ing to plans, the Club turned in 
early in the Army style bunks to 
rest up for the Town Hall concert. 

Town Hail Concert 
On Monday, March 30, the cli- 
max of the tour and season was 
reached at Town Hall in New 
York. A short rehearsal was held 
in the afternoon with Frederick 
Weidner III '50 who sang the solo 
in "Russian Picnic" that evening. 

The concert began sharply at 
8:30 p.m. with the Hall almost 
filled. The club sang well, and 
though not as relaxed as usual, the 
enthusiasm more than made up 
for the tension. Accompanists 
Gordon W. Stearns '54 and David 
W. Holmes performed excellently 
and the soloists did a fine .job. 
Many alumni stepped up from the 
audience to sing the College Med- 
ley. ' 

The Club left for Philadelphia on 
Tuesday morning where the mem- 
bers were lodged at the fraternity 
houses at the University of Penn- 
sylvania. Due to the Spring re- 
cess, the concert was not too well 
attended, though those present 
showed their appreciation. After- 
wards the individual was left to 
his own devices, which amounted in 
most cases to a long night's sleep. 
On, To Washington 

Wednesday found" the Club en 
route to Washington. After a deli- 
cious dinner at the Mount Vernon 
Seminary, the Bowdoin Alumni 
Club outlined its plans for a tour 
of Washington for the Club. Dur- 
ing the dinner, the Meddiebemp- 
sters sang two songs over WMAL- 

The concert that evening was 
well attended, and the audience in- 
cluded. Senator Margaret Chase 
Smith of Maine, Senator and Mrs." 
Frederick Paine, and Senator Paul 
Douglas '13. Also present were 
Representative and Mrs. Hale of 
Maine, and Mrs. Harold. Marsh, 
chairman of the concert commit- 

"Tilly" raised the spirits of the 
Club and that evening the last of 
six concerts was considered a suc- 
cess. A dance followed, at which 
the "lumberjacks" tried their 
hand at impressing southern belles. 

The tour finished on Thursday 
with 'a tour through the White 
House, Supreme Court and Capitol, 
as well as a trip to the Lincoln 
and Jefferson Memorials. The Club 
was guided by Mrs. Hale and Mrs. 

The Club heard a short talk by 

Associate Justice Harold Burton 

'09 and met Senator and Mrs. 

Paine and May Craig, columnist

In his chapel talk last Sunday. 
April 12, 1953, Reverend Edgar C. 
Reckard Jr., Chaplain of Brown 
University, spoke on the Christian 
Life as an "adventure" and an 

Reverend Reckard spoke of the 
"particular deadness" of religion 
among Christians during the week 
after Easter. He stated that many 
clues to the secret of keeping the 
Christian experience on a "hori- 
zontal plane," without a decline 
directly after Easter, could be 
found in literature, particularly in 
the "images" that literature pre- 
sents to us. 

Reverend Reckard applied the 
image of journey and exploration 
that is found in many places in 
literature to the Christian religion. 
He stated that the stories is liter- 
ature of journey and exploration 
that have gained "enduring in- 
terest" are more than just ad- 
venture stories that deal with 
geography and time. They are the 
reflection of what is happening in 

the explorer's inner life. In ap- 
plying this idea to Christianity ho 
observed. "Physical expression is 
the spiritual passion," of Chris- 

While looking at several stories 
of, exploration and adventure, 
Reverend Reckard stated that he 
found three significant character- 
istics that all possessed. The first 
was that all the men in the stories 
traveled in their explorations into 
a strange land. He said that "life 
as a spiritual journey requires a 
pushing-out into the unknown" 
just as the men in the stories push- 
out into a strange land. 

The second characteristic, which 
Reverend Reckard described as 
"odd" was that the men who 
travel never really do enjoy them- 
selves. The third was that at the 
end of the journey the explorer is. 
never satisfied. Yet, he observed, 
"he is never discouraged."

Bj, Robert M- Hurst '54, ORIENT Sports Editor 

After whetting the appetites of the northern baseball fans for 
six weeks in the climes of the sunny south, the major league clubs 
have finally returned home to their summer fans to get down to the 
process o/ deciding who will play who in the World Series next Sep- 
tember. It will take 154 games for both the winners and losers in the 
. pennant races to decide the final standings in the league and while 
the season is still young the veteran sportswriters, ex-major leaguers, 
and other assorted personages who follow the national pastime specu- 
late as to how the teams will finish. As an assorted personage I 
would like to pick how I think the clubs will finish in the majors 
this season. 

In the American League this year it looks like Casey Stengel 
has his fifth straight pennant and probably world series. No one 
ran match his pitching except perhaps the Cleveland Indians. Start- 
ing for the Yankees are Allie Reynolds, Ed Lopat, Vic Raschi and 
Whitey Ford, recently returned from Uncle Sam. To back up these 
four in relief are three ex-National League twenty game winners 
Ewell Blackwell, who could be inserted as a starter, Johnny Sain, and 
Johnny Schmifc. Bob Kuzava can also be counted on to either start 
or relieve whenever needed. 

No need be mentioned of the rest of the team, for players like 
Mantle, Berra, Rizzuto, and Bauer speak for themselves. The Cleve- 
land Indians, logical successors to the Yankees, are the second place 
rhoice. They have the pitching of Garcia, Lemon, Wynn and the aging 
Bob Feller. Behind the plate is the best handler of pitchers perhaps 
in either league in the form of Jim Hegan. Although the infield is 
weak fielding it should be improved over last year. Luke Easter, 
bothered by injuries last year, is reported in better shape than ever. 
Dale Mitchell and Larry Doby give the Indians a solid outfield. 

The Chicago White Sox strengthened by the additions of Ferris 
Fain, American League batting champ, and Junior Stephens could 
surprise. Their pitching isn't quite as good as the Yankees or Indians 
and that department might be their downfall. In fourth place the 
Boston Red So* stand with Lou Boudreau at the helm. This choice 
obviously is questionable hut a certain amount of favoritism admittedly 
is involved here. If the Red Sox are to finish even this high their 
miserable pitching staff will almost have to perform miracles. Veter- 
ans Hell, Goodman, Dimaggio, and White will have to be the mainstays 
in a relatively untried lineup. After the Red Sox, Washington, Phila- 
delphia. St. Louis, and Detroit in that order. Either Boston, the Sena- 
tors or the Athletics have the potentiality to finish in the first division. 

In the National League, Brooklyn once again rates the nod over 
Philadelphia and the Giants. Man for man the Dodgers seem to have 
it over all the other clubs in the league. The addition of Junior Gilliam 
at second shifting the aging Jackie Robinson to third plugs a gap in 
the infield. With a pitching staff centered around Joe Black, Preacher 
Roe, Russ Meyer, and Billy Loes the Bums should be able to compete 
on even footing with anyone. One thing that plagued the Dodgers 
last year was their ability to lost to the other top teams in the league 
and consistently throttle their weaker brothers especially the Braves 
and Pittsburgh. With the lower clubs irnproved over last year the 
Dodgers might be in for trouble. The Phils with Roberts and company 
are more than likely to outlast Duroeher's Giants and could easily 
take the pennant. The whiz kids have slowed down a lot but they 
play steady ball now and have excellent pitching in Robin Roberts, 
Curt Simmons, and Karl Drews whom manager Steven O'Neil is count- 
ing on to win 70 games between them. 

The boys from the Polo Grounds of course can't be counted out 
of pennant contention but are not quite as good on paper as the 
Dodgers or Phils. Leo will have to depend on Hoyt Wilhelm a good 
deal on the mount backed up by veterans Sal Maglie, Jim Reams, 
I. airy Jansen, and Max Lanier. Daryl Spencer, who recently got hit 
in the face by one of Mike Garcia's fast balls, is a rookie whom the 
C.iants expect a lot from at third base. Fourth place or a chance for 
the first division is a toss up Milwaukee against my better judgment 
ending up there. The Braves aren't too strong on the mound but have 
benefited by acquisition of Andy Pafko and Joe Adcock. Following 
the Braves will be the Cardinals, Chicago, Cincinnati, and Pittsburgh 
in that order.

Dean Points To Need 
Of Hazing Improvement 

[Continued from l»«g# /] 
as being unanimously opposed to 


Reiterating that any change in 
the time of the initiations to after 
Christmas or to the start of the 
second semester would have to be 
accompanied by less emphasis on 
the objectional side of hazing, the 

Dean said that he hoped that some 
action on improving the situation 
would come from the students or 
the fraternities. 

The Dean stated that in the past 
some had opposed the delayed in- 
itiation on the grounds that it 
might cause broken pledges. He 
said that he would anticipate little 
trouble from this possible source. 
Approves Of Suggestion 

When asked about the possi- 
bility of a fraternity not initiating 
a student who was flunking a sub- 
ject or who was not maintaining a 
certain average, Dean Kendrick 
replied that he was highly in favor 
of such an idea. He said that the 
fraternity was not helped much 
by a man who might only remain 
at Bowdoin for one semester. 

Two fraternities at Bowdoin 

now have such a regulation which 

compels a prospective initiate to 

i maintain a certain scholastic 


Proposal History 

The proposal to delay initiation 
was originally submitted to the 
Student Council by the representa- 
tives of Beta Theta Pi. Referred 
back to the various fraternity 
houses, the proposal which would 
have moved the initiation date 
from home-coming weekend to 
after the mid-year exam period.

Baseball Picture Looks Good, 
Catching Major Difficulty 

Outlook For Freshman 
Baseball Bright; First 
Of 12 Games Friday 

The freshman baseball team 
opens its schedule this Friday ver- 
sus Westbrook High School. 

There is a wealth of talent on 
this year's freshman club. Of 40 
who reported for practice before 
Easter, Coach Coombs has only 
been able to eliminate 17 recruits 
from the squad. He hopes to cut 
five more in the near future. 

The following boys form the 
group which represents the team 
at this time. Behind .the plate are 
George W. Heselton and David L. 
Tamminen. Leroy E. Dyer, Wayne 
F. Orsie, Albert R. Marshall, Rich- 
ard H. Sargent, and James M. Bel- 
knap will handle the pitching 
chores. At first base Ronald A. 
Golz and Ronall F. Harris will take 
the responsibilities. John A. 
Kreider and Timothy B. Stearns 
play second base, while John T. 
Libby, Leanord G. Plasse, and 
Gareth S. Gelinas are at short- 
stop. Guarding the "hot corner" 
are Peter J. Rigby, Paul S. 
Doherty, and Paul G. Kirby. Out- 
field candidates are Alfred I. Mur- 
ray, Edward M. Kenney, John L. 
Berkly, Peter A. Chapman, and 
Frank D. Beveridge. 

It is very possible that the can- 

With 11 lettermen returning 
from last year's State Champion^ 
ship team, the 1953 season 
promises to be a good one for the 
varsity baseball team. The biggest 
problem facing Coach Danny Mac- 
Fayden at present is the job of 
finding replacements for pitcher 
Art Bishop and catcher Andy 
La no. 

With less than a week of 
practice before the season opens 
most of the infield and outfield 
positions have already been deter- 
mined. Jack Cosgrove will hold 
down first with Frank Vecella at 
second base. At shortstop position 
is Captain Corby Wolfe. "Biggie" 
McGovern will play third, backed 
up by Phil Trussell. who will also 
be used as a general utility man. 

In the outfield Walt Bartlett will 
cover left, Fred Flemming will 
patrol center field, while right 
field duties will be divided among 
Barry Nichols, Ray Petterson. «and 
Hal Anthony when he is not pitch- 

Perhaps the biggest question 
mark as far as competition goes 
will be the catching department 
where there are no experienced 

didates mentioned first at each 
position above may be in the start- 
ing line-up this Friday. 

The team has a 12 game sched- 
ule to fulfill this spring. Ten of 
these contests are to be played at 
home, so there will be ample op- 
portunities to watch the team in 
action this spring. 

players to replace Lano. pick Mar- 
shall, who won a letter last year 
as an infielder. is currently the 
number one catcher. How well he 
can fill Lano's shoes and how well 
Anthony can measure up to Bis- 
hop's ability may well determine 
the success of the team. 

Of the five regularly starting 
pitchers, three are already certain, 
Anthony, top pitcher on last year's 
freshmen club-, is expected to fill 
the slot vacated by Bishop. Lou 
Audet. a senior, and Paul Clifford, 
junior, are the other two starters 
at present. Battling for the other 
berths will be sophomore Fred 
Coukos. Jim Hebert, who did not 
participate last year because of a 
sore arm, Barry Nichols. Jerry 
Gracey, Gilley, and Bob Lilley. 

The other two starting positions 
will be decided next week when 
the team makes its southern trip, 
playing Amherst, Williams, MJT. 
and Harvard. Between the 20th 
and the 29th, the Polar Bears will 
play six games in ten days, which 
should give their pitching staff a 
good workout. 

Once over this hurdle, the team 
should have easier going. MacFay- 
den feels. He picks the University 
of Maine, a strong hitting club, as 
the team the Big White will have 
to beat if they are to win their 
fifth straight championship.

Can you "take it" 6 days a week? For 52 weeks? Can 
you meet the high standards required to be an Avia- 
tion Cadet? If you can — then here's a man-size oppor- 
tunity! An opportunity to serve your country and 
build a personal career that will fit you for responsible 
positions both in military and commercial aviation. 

It won't be easy! Training discipline for Aviation 
Cadets is rigid. You'll wdriHiard, study hard, play 
hard— especially for the first few weeks. But when it's 
over, you'll be a pro— with a career ahead of you that 
will take you as far as you want to go. You graduate 
as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Air Force, with pay of 
$5,300.00 a year. And this is only the beginning— 

your opportunities for advancement are unlimited. 

To qualify as an Aviation Cadet, you must have com- 
pleted at least two years of college. This is a minimum 
requirement— it's best if you stay in school and gradu- 
ate. In addition, you must be between 19 and 26>/i 
years, unmarried, and in good physical condition. 


If you choose to>be an Aircraft Observer, your drain- 
ing will be in Navigation, Bombardment, Radar 
Operation or Aircraft Performance Engineering. 

New Aviation Cadet Training Classes Begin Every Few Weeks! 


1. Take a transcript of your college credits and a copy 
of your birth certificate to your nearest Air Force 
Base or Recruiting Station. Fill out the application 
they give you. 

2, If application is accepted, the Air Force will arrange 
for you to take a physical examination. 

3. Next, you will be given a written and manual apti- 
tude test. 

4. If you pass your physical and other tests, you will 
be scheduled for an Aviation Cadet Training Class. 
The Selective Service Act allows you a four-month 
deferment while waiting class assignment.

Behind The Ivy Curtain 

By E. Ward 

As our first order of business 
this week, we would like to re- 
Port that absolutely nothing hap- 
pened on other college campuses 
this past week. 

We don't very often listen to 
the radio, an even less often to 
our own college radio station, but 
Wednesday last we happened to 
be doing both (quite by accident, 
of course). We had hoped to get 
some news, it being around 11:30 
PJn., and we were twisting one of 
the knobs with reckless abandon 
when we ran across WBOA. A 
broadcast was in the act of sign- 
ing off, and we thought we would 
listen and see whether or not a 
news broadcast would follow One 

Instead of a competent digest 
of the news, our ear was assaulted 
by a number of giggling fools 
trying to sell a 
] spurious product 
(known as Garnet 
1 Matches. These 
matches, claimed 
one or another of 
] t h e announcers, 

dnot only strike 
anywhere, but 
"burn with a 
hard and gem 
like flame". Then the char- 
acter tried to burn the microphone 
(or so it seemed) with one. 

But Garnet Matches were not 
the only thing that the denizens 
of Upper Moulton Union are try- 
ing to foist off on a gullible public. 
The program opened with a trio 
singing, if the discords that group 
produced can be granted the name 
of "singing", something (we are 
at a loss to describe it any fur- 
ther) that ran like this: 

Oh, I haven't washed dishes in 
quite a spell. 

They're stacked in the sink and 
beginning to smell. 
This musical gem was followed by 
a few assorted snickers and one 
member of the party (it sure 
sounded like a good one), in an 
unctuous tone of voice, singing 
(figuaratively) the praises of a 
product known only as "Mother 
Fletcher's Paper Plates". We 
hate to say this, boys, but it 
sounded frightfully like a lift 
from Jackie Gleason. It must 
have been a funny commercial; 
everybody in the studio seemed to 
enjoy it. The accompaniment was 

In<lis|H'iisinlc, Indeed 

We can only recall, thank 
heavens, one more commercial. 
This was another one of indispen- 
sible Mother Fletcher's products, ! 
a pill, a Little Kidney Pill. There 
was drama involved in this worthy 
presentation. It commenced with 
several cries of immense pain, 
which gave us the distinct impres- 
sion that we were listening to an 
Australian tag team wrestling 
match. We heard no falls, how- 
ever. Just exactly what followed 
these cries of pain is a mystery 
to us. The announcer began the 
commercial, but that was about 
as far as he got. There seemed 
to be a little confusion. Maybe 
the script got in the way of one 
of those Garnet Matches. 

Aside from the commercials, the 
rest of the program was poor too. 
There were assorted musical se- 
lections, of which only those that 
were recorded bore any resem- 
blance to what we uneducated 
would call 'music. Other than 
records, there was the unavoid- 
able trio, doing their idea of a 
ballad called "1 Lost My Love In 

Oilman '53 • 

the Ohio Flood". From the gen- 
eral tone of the group, we assumed 
it to be the same one that extolled 
the virtues of Mother Fletcher's 
Paper Plates. The result was no 
better, except for the ending, in 
which the trio tried a deliberate 
discord and came closer to har- 
mony than anything else they did. 

The other "musical" offering 
deserves no mention, but inchage 
is inchage, so we shall pan it. It 
consisted of several minor snick- 
ers and a pseudo-western char- 
acter known variously as Red 
River Dave, Dead River Dave, and 
once as we recall, Deep River" 1 
Dave. No matter what river Dave 
originated from, he added nothing 
at all to the program. 

Beginning To Smell 

We haven't bothered to try to 
find out whose fault this particu- 
lar broadcast is, but. to whom it 
may concern, you know nothing 
about, cooking. Another gem of 
a character, this one supposedly 
a Down East salt called Uncle 
Bob, and who seemed to know 
little English except the inter- 
jection "ayuh", tried in a half- 
hearted manner to enlighten the 
listening public concerning the 
virtues of 8 dish called "Lobster 
Crush". It was an interesting 
recipe, as much of it as we were 
able to understand. It involved 
some lobsters, some bricks, and an 
assorted set of kettles. Just how 
all this paraphanalia is trans- 
formed into the culinary treat it 
is supposed to be is a mystery to 
us. Until we are further en- 
lightened, we will take our lob- 
sters plain. 

Talking Dog, Yet! 

We are indeed fortunate in be- 
ing unable to remember anything 
further other than the talking dog, 
who. we fear, died in the course 
of the* broadcast. At any rate, 
when called upon to speak, the dog 
remained adamant (if, indeed, 
there even was a dog in the 
studio). Thereupon somebody 
whispered, "Kick it!" and there 
was a loud yelp. Then there was 
nothing further from o«tr canine 
friend. The dog seemed to be 
the only intelligent member of the 
cast in remaining silent. 

Of course, we are far from be- 
ing anything that even resembles 
a radio critic, but we thought, in 
the public interest, that we would 
give it a try this week, especially 
since our man Gunther is at pres- 
ent indisposed. And in order to 
be correctly critical, we must find 
something good to say about the 
program. We will. The an- 
nouncer that closed the broadcast 
was in good voice. And another 
good thing: the show was only one 
half hour long. 

If we may stoop to being serious 
for a moment, we are almost in 
favor of this sort of thing, even 
though it will cut the WBOA ap- 
propriation next year by fifty per- 
cent. But we would like to sug- 
gest the use of a script, or a rea- 
sonable facsimile thereof. This 
broadcast seemed to have been ad 
libbed. Pity. § 

We are not available for duels.

Young Republican Trip 
To Legislature Draws 
25 Last Wednesday 

A trip to the Maine State Legis-

publican Club on April 8 enabled 
approximately twenty-five under- 
graduates to meet the Governor 
and to get an understanding of 
Phe operation of the State Govern- 

Upon arrival in Augusta the 
group met with Governor Burton 
M. Cross and spent the remainder 
of the morning on a tour of the 
Senate and House of Representa- 
tives. A visit to a hearing by the 
Legal Affairs Committee took up 
the entire afternoon. The hearing, 
involving an amendment to the 
Lewiston City Charter, was as en- 
tertaining as it was instructive 
due to the dramatic bursts of 
oratory by two of the city's ex- 
mayors which often had the com- 
mittee and visitors roaring.

Class Of '50 Graduate 
Appointed To Clerkship 

A Bowdoin graduate Raymond 
S. Troubh, a member of the Class 
of 1950, is one of five Yale Law 
School graduates who have re- 
cently received one year legal 
clerkship appointments to work 
with Supreme Court Justices. 

Troubh, a cum laude graduate 
of the College, is now 27 years old 
and during his college days was 
President of the Student Council 
and Managing Editor of the Bow- 
doin Orient. He was also a stu- 
dent assistant in the Government 
Department, a member of Alpha

doin Christian Association, and the 
Student Advisory Committee on 

At Yale Law School he was a 
member of the Moot Court Ad- 
visory Board, the Editorial Board 
on the Yale Law Journal, and the 
Board of Directors of the Barris- 
ter's Union. 

He received his appointment 
from Justice Harold H. Burton, 
who graduated from Bowdoin in 
1909. Troubh will begin his one 
year period as an assistant in 
June, and will be engaged in re- 
search and other legal work. 

He is presently serving as clerk 
to Judge Thomas W. Swan of the 
United States Second Circuit 
Court of Appeals. 

and to stimulate informal debate 
and discussion on the campus. 

When approached with this sug- 
gestion of an intramural debating 
program, the Bowdoin Student 
Council and the several fraterni- 
ties expressed their interest and 
set up an interfraternity council 
to aid in formulating plans. Ten- 
tatively, a series of weekly fireside 
debates will be run off between 
the Thanksgiving and Easter Re- 
cesses, with the fraternities act- 
ing as hosts. Topics will be an- 
nounced at Chapel on the day of 
each scheduled contest. The de-

ducted, will be followed by group 

The trophy will be known as the 
Wilmot Brookings Mitchell trophy, 
and recognizes Professor Mitchell's 
contribution to the growth of in-

six years of teaching at Bowdoin. 

An undergraduate in the Class 
of 1890, Professor Mitchell re-

Previous Production 

"The Hasty Heart", by John 
Patrick, was done at Bowdoin dur- 
ing the summer session of 1946 
at the same time it was running 
on Broadway. The New York City 
production featured Richard Base- 
hart and John Lund. Professor 
Quinby feels that the play will be 
as enthusiastically received as it 
was in 1946. « 

"The Hasty Heart" is a three 
act play set in a British Army hos- 
pital located in Southeast Asia. 
The setting will be almost identi- 
cal with the one used in the earlier 
production. All of the scenes take 
place in the same hospital ward. 
Varied Characters 

The play deals with one of the 
men, a Scott named Lachlen, who 
is doomed to die, a fact which he 
doesn't know, although the others 
do. Soldiers from America ( Yank),

Committee Declines To Back 
Radical Requirement Moves 

The Student Curriculum Committee submitted a report to the 
President Monday concerning the science requirement, jreoommenOlng 
no radical changes in the present requirement, but making four sug- 
gestions which it felt to be desirable. ... 

The Committee disapproved of a general science course to fulfill 
the science requirement. It felt that such a course would tend to 
discuss science and not be in itself study in a science". Such a p°urs* 
would not achieve the objectives of the science requirement in a liberal 
arts college such as Bowdoin. 
New Course Soughs 
The Committee did recommend, 
though, that a course in the his- 
tory and methodology of science 
be given, to be accepted for the 
second science of those students 
choosing the science option in the 
general requirements. It was sug- 
gested that such a course have a 
year of laboratory science as a pre- 
requisite and require Junior stand-

In 2nd Tallman Lecture 

Dr. Yi-Poa Mei delivered the 

second of three Tallman lectures 

Thursday night in the Moulton 

Union Lounge before an attentive 

The Committee also recommend- 1 crowd of students and faculty 

ed that Professor Little's Astron- 1 members 

omy 1-2 be accepted for the science 
requirement after certaiq changes 
were instituted. It suggested that 
more problem and laboratory work 
be incorporated in order that the 
course have the same rigor and 
difficulty as the other elementary 
science courses. 

Astronomy Good Alternate 
The Committee felt that astron- 
omy would be a useful alternative 
for the student and would have the 
advantage of economy, as the in- 
structor and facilities were al- 
ready available. 

A plan suggested by Professor 
Root received support from the 
Committee. This plan involves the 
division of Chemistry 2 into two 
groups, one for those who plan to 
major in chemistry and one for 
those who plan to go no further 
with the subject. Professor Root 
already instituted the plan on an 
experimental basis in the present 
Chemistry 2 class. 

The Committee recommended 
that the same plan be studied for 
possible application to the other 
sciences. It was felt, however, that 
a course which was divided in this 
way for the whole year would have 
serious shortcomings. 'First, the 
student who had not yet made up 
his mind about a major would be 
at a disadvantage, and second, 
such a course would again have 
the difficulty of discussing science 
and not actually applying scientific 

Open To Freshmen 
The Committee also suggested 
that Biology 1-2 be opened to 
Freshmen. Apparently, it was 
closed because of a shortage of 
space, and now that a new lecture 
hall is being used, there is ap- 
parently no reason for continuing 
the restriction. The elimination of 
Freshmen from the course also 
gave the student who intended, to 
major in Biology a serious handi- 

This report was the fourth to be 
submitted by the Committee to the 
Administration. The previous ones 
concerned the final examination 
period, the typing course, and the 
five course requirement of the 
Sophomore year in addition to the 
ROTC non-credit course. 

At its last meeting, the Com- 
mittee decided to discuss the 
scheduling of English courses and 
various aspects of the cal require- 
ment. It also decided to ask the 
fraternities to elect next year's 
members of the Committee at least 
two weeks before final examina- 
tions in order that the new Com- 
mittee might meet with the oid. 

Speaking on "Chinese Commun- 
ism in Theory and in Practice," 
Dr. Mei pointed out some of the 
differences between Communist 
ideology and practice. He said 
that the greatest departure from 
the ideals were apparent in civil 
liberties. The Communists claim 
that all people have the right to 
vote, and that freedom of religion, 
speech, and the press are granted 
to all people. 

IVople Are Not "People" s 
In practice, Dr. Mei pointed 
out, the term "people" includes 
only persons in certain groups de- 
termined by the government. The 
fact that the number of universi- 
ties has dwindled from "13 to 
gives some indication of the actual 
conditions. "In China today," said 
Dr. Mei, "there is scarcity of free 
speech and an abundance of free 

Before analyzing the present 
Communist government, Dr. Mei 
explained its place in history. He 
first gave a brief historical sketch 
of China from the Opium War in 
1840 down to .the entrance of the 
Communists, stressing China's 
humiliation at the hands of for- 
eign countries in the late nine- 
teenth century. The Communist 
Party originated in China in 1921 
but did not gain control of the 
government until the Marshall 
Plan was declared a failure and 
open fighting broke out in 1947. 
Two years later on October 1, 
1949, the "Central .People's Gov- 
ernment" came into power. 

Dr. Mei emphasized the fact 
that the Communist beginning was 
a" good one, at least- in the eyes of 
the people. Unlike the old Nation- 
alist soldiers, the new Communist 
soldiers were somewhat respected 
by the people. A hard working 
governmental core was set up to 
uncover graft and to establish in- 
ternal order. Attempts were made 
at reconstruction, and for once 
the railroads ran on time. How- 
ever, these beginnings have de- 
teriorated to thought control, re- 
learning of "knowledge," and 
empty propaganda. 

Dr. Mei made It clear that al- 
though many have labelled the 
new government "agrarian", be- 
cause of its attempts at land re- 
forms, it is by nature of its ideals 
communist. Its leader, Mao Tse 
Tung, foresees a bourgeoisie revo- 
lution in the future, followed by a 
socialistic revolution of the pro-

Kirkland To Lecture On 
'Academic Freedom In 
Peril', Monday, May 4 

Edward C. Kirkland, Frank 
Munsey, Professor of American 
History, will speak on "Academic 
Freedom in Peril" under the aus- 
pices of the Bowdoin Chapter of 
the American Association of Uni- 
versity Professors in Smith Audit- 
orium, Monday, May 4, at 8:15 

The local chapter of the AAUP 
hopes that both students and 
townspeople will take the oppor- 
tunity to hear a uniquely qualified 
speaker on a developing crisis 
important not only to professors 
but to all citizens. 

Professor Kirkland has been 
long and vigorously concerned 
with the defense and definition of 
academic freedom. He is a former 
national president of the AAUP; 
he has served as chairman of that 
organization's committee on Aca- 
demic Freedom and Tenure; and 
he was chairman of its cominittee

demic freedom in the United 


Attacked By Buckley 

William F. Buckley, Jr.. a con- 
troversial figure far removed from 
the thinking of Professor Kirk- 
land, ranged out of the confines 
of Yale in "God and Man at Yale"

Professor. It is certain that large 
numbers of teachers see in Buck- 
ley's extended attack a testimonial 
to Professor Kirkland's effective- 
ness as a spokesman for their po- 

ROTC Graduates Will 
All Have Commissions 
In Transportation Corps 

Despite rumors to the effect 
that the number of commission^ 
alloted to the Bowdoin ROTC unit 
of the Transportation Corps falls 
short of the number of senior 
ROTC students, and that thus 
students will be placed in eth«r 
branches of the Army, all wbj> 
have completed the ROTC re- 
quirements at Bowdoin will re- 
ceive commissions in the TC. 

The rumors started on two ac- 
counts. The number of senior 
ROTC students does exceed the 
number of commissions to be 
granted this summer becauae 
many students enrolled in the 
course have either not fulfilled 
their Bowdoin requirements or 
have not attended the TC summer 
camp. Four seniors have yet to 
attend summer camp, thro* 
juniors enrolled in the senior 
ROTC program because of pre- 
vious military training have 
another year at Bowdoin, and four 
others will graduate in February. 
Rumors Of Transfer 

Quotas for details to othar 
branches of the Army have been 
received for fulfillment by the 
Bowdoin unit of the Transporta- 
tion Corps. This does not, how- 
ever, mean that students will be 
transferred to these other 
branches, unless they request 
transfer. All will be commissioned 
in the TC, and it is expected thaj 
all details assigned will be the 
choice of qualified students. ■ a 

Each detail requires certaia 
qualifications and the selectioi 
will be based on four considera- 
tions; the student's preference, 
his major field of study, the aca- 
demic standing of the student m 
the College, and his leadership po-

at a recent meeting voted to award ? four; the Medical Service Corps, 

three; the Armored Corps, one; 
the Artillery, four; and Ordnance, 
two. The quota for the Corps of 
Engineers was changed from four 
to three due to the limited qualifi- 
cation of Bowdoin students for 
that particular branch, while the 
quota for. the Infantry was chang- 
ed from three to four because of 
specific requests for that branch 
from four qualified students.

Coles Warns Scholarships Lag 
Behind Increased College Costs 

Stating that the availability of scholarship aid for college under- 
graduates had lagged behind the increase in college costs during the 
past fifty years, President James S. Coles stressed the need of increas- 
ing this form of assistance at a meeting of the Bowdoin Alumni Club

scholarships once a year, at the 
beginning of each summer, for the 
entire ensuing academic year. 

Applications for scholarships for 
the coming academic year (1953-

office in Massachusetts Hall not 
later than Wednesday, April 29. 
Application forms may be obtain- 
ed at Mr. Wilder's office on and 
after Thursday, April 23. Appli- 
cants should secure their blanks 
early so that information from 
home, if necessary, may be obtain- 
ed without delay. Late applications 
may be rejected or the award be 

Awards will be based on aca- 
demic achievement, character, and 
financial need. To qualify for an 
award an upperclassman must ob- 
tain an average grade of C or bet- 
ter in his courses of the present 
semester. For a freshman (Class 
of 1956) an average grade of C- 
or better in the courses of the pre- 
sent semester is required. 
Payable In Quarters 

The Committee on Student Aid 
has voted that awards shall be 
payable in four equal installments. 
The first quarter of the award will 
be paid at the beginning of the 
College year. Continuation of the 
scholarship through the year will 
be contingent upon satisfactory re- 
ports for eich quarter. A student

an the roadway. The "Iron Curtain" is proving a successful alterna- 

Chem Driveway Barrier Designed 
To Halt Student Parking T,here 

Dubbed the "Iron Curtain" by many Bowdoin students, the four 
iron posts blocking each end of the Chemistry Building driveway were 
designed to prevent students from parking cars in -front of the new 
Parker Cleaveland Hall. 

In the eyes of President James S. Coles, the parked cars detract 
greatly from the beauty of Vie building. In an interview yesterday 
with tiie ORIENT, he said that a great deal of money had been spent 
on landscaping and decorating the oval in front of the new building. 
He thought that the iron posts were the easiest means of preventing 
the front drive from becoming a parking lot. 

Intended For Walk 
According to President Coles, 
the asphalt pavement was original- 
ly intended to be a walk, but was 
made wide enough for cars. He 
said that the signs erected last fall 
requesting students not to park on 
the oval had been completely 
ignored. He pointed out the large 
numbers of unused parking spaces 
across from the heating plant and 
parking places along the Bath 
Road as possible parking places. 
New Improvements Planned 
President Coles also revealed 
some improvements in parking 
areas which are being considered 
by the college. He mentioned the 
possibility of planting grass be- 
tween the dormitories with the ex- 
ception of a narrow strip on the 
road side which could be used for 
parking. Another improvement 
would be a parking lot immediate- 
ly behind the chemistry building.

No Conclusion Reached 
By Student Council 
On Delayed Initiation 

A short discussion by the Stud- 
ent Council, at their regular meet- 
ing Monday, over the Dean's re- 
quest for more thought on the 
plan to delay initiation bought 
out no definite conclusions. 

The group, however, decided to 
ask the Dean if he had any defin- 
ite proposal which he wished to 
offer or suggest. Council Vice- 
President Richard B. Salsman '54

Professor Storer spent the aca-

Also approved by the Council 
was a request that the Union 
Bookstore and the Bursar's office 
be allowed to cash ROTC checks. 
A $25 limit on checks which can 
now. be cashed by these two cam- 
pus agencies makes it impossible 
for students to cash most of their 
ROTC checks, checks which fre- 
quently amount to a figure just 
slightly more than this top limit 
The request was taken by Sals- 
man to the administration. 

The selection of proctors for 
next year was again delayed. 


Difficult To Finance 

In his Boston address President 
Coles made it plain that only in 
the most unusual circumstances 
can any student now finance his 
own college education, even with 
the maxium scholarship aid avail- 
able. He told his Alumni audience 
that during the first decade of the 
twentieth century the average 
Bowdoin scholarship award was 
one-third times the annual tuition 
charge, and that one-third of the 
student body of that day received 
such assistance. 

Today, in contrast, President 
Coles stated, something less than 
thirty percent of the undergradu- 
ates receive assistance averaging 
only about half of the current 
charge for tuition and fees. If the 
colleges are to continue to serve 
their students as they did, there 
must be a material increase in en- 
dowment for scholarship aid. he 


President Coles praised the 
state universities for the service 
which they render, but stressed the 
need for "a nucleus of colleges in- 
dependent of any kind of govern- 
ment support and independent of 
any threat of government control." 
He urged an increase in the sup- 
port of independent education by 
American corporations, claiming 

that such support is fully justified. 
Dependence Of Industry 

American business, he said, 
makes use of all the knowledge 
which is advanced by the existence 
of institutions of higher education; 
it calls on the colleges for most 
of its "top drawer personnel;" it 
calls on the colleges for a num- 
ber of direct services and it turns 
to them for the education of the 
children of its employees. L«ss 
specific, but even more important, 
he said, is the dependence of in- 
dependence of industry upon the 
free and responsible society, nur- 
tured by higher education through- 
out American history. 

The subject of President Coles' 
Bucknell speech was "The New 
Curriculum in Chemistry at Brown 

President Coles was Associate 
Professor of Chemistry and Execu- 
tive Officer of the Chemistry De- 
partment at Brown when he was

Bowdoin students proceed to the 
Massachusetts Institute of Tech- 
nology at the close of their junior 
year for two years' work at the 
Institute in anticipation of the 
joint receipt of the A.B. degree 
from Bowdoin and the B.S. degree 
from the Institute, has announced 
the names of four current under- 
graduates who have been approved 
under this program. 

These men, all of them now 
completing their third year at 
Bowdoin, will enroll at the In- 
stitute in the fall of 1953. All 
four men have been taking select- 
ed courses at Bowdoin in anticipa- 
tion of the transfer to M.I.T. 

The list includes A. Allen Gass, 
Robert C. Grout, Charles C. Ladd, 
Jr. and Joseph T. O'Connor. 

There is a possibility that one 
or more additional students may 
be approved for certification to 
the Institute at the close of the

Teachers Told Bowdoin Will Have 
To Meet High School Programs 

Warning that Bowdoin and liberal arts colleges like it "will have 
to alter what they believe the best kind of education to be" if they 
wish to meet changed conditions, Paul V. Hazelton '42, Assistant Di- 
rector of Admissions, told a recent gathering of Bowdoin graduates 
now in the teaching profession in Maine that Bowdoin has a definite 
responsibility to the non-college preparatory students in high schools. 

Mr. Hazelton told the group this alteration was not a question 
of choice for the liberal arts college since the point is being ap- 
proached at which a revised high school curriculum and a greater 
amount of competition among colleges In admissions would make 
this change mandatory. 

The award is made to Dr. Chris- 
tie to afford him an opportunity to 
increase his effectiveness as a col- 
lege teacher. 

Dr. Christie expects to spend the

Has A Responsibility 
The speaker introduced his sub- 
ject on "the responsibility of a col- 
lege such as Bowdoin to the group 
that has neither the particular 
talent nor the particular interest 
for a liberal arts college. He said* 
that he doubted that anyone would 
dispute Bowdoin's responsibility to 
this group, but he added that prob- 
ably most were uncertain as to 
what precisely was this responsi- 
bility or how it was to be fulfilled. 

Mr. Hazelton pointed out the 
sometimes narrow view which the 
liberal arts college has towards 
the modern high school curricu- 
lum. "At their worst," he said, "the 
liberal arts colleges have taken a 
shamefully narrow view of what 
a modern school curriculum should 
be and have indulged themselves in 
the worst kind of highhanded im- 
patience with some of the grimly 
serious porblems that face the high 

View fiUsort-SicMed 

Pointing out that such a narrow 
view was quite likely short-sighted, 
Mr. Hazelton said that, "For in the 
end. what happens to American 
colleges will depend on what hap- 
pens to every aspect of American 
high schools." 

Such a view is sometimes match- 
ed by an equally narrow view that 
some professional educators take 
of the colleges such as Bowdoin, 
the speaker added. He said that, 
"For some of these critics of the 

liberal arts college, the very 
epitome of the educational police 
state which is Bowdoin is to be 
found in the"* outrageous notions 
that an educated man may be ex- 
pected to have some knowledge of 
a language other than his own and 
some experience in the fields of 
mathematics or classics." 
Gulf Inevitable 

Mr. Hazelton said that this gulf 
between the liberal arts colleges 
and the secondary schools was 
doubtless inevitable. "But," he 
added, "if it has been evitable that 
the influence of the liberal arts 
college has been steadily reduced 
within the schools in the p»*t half 
century, it is less clear that the 
influence of the college on the 
schools should have been reduced 
in the same proportion. 

The speaker pointed out that 50 
years ago in this state the practice 
of some students taking a year out 
In the middle of their college 
career In order to teach in the high 
schools, the several Bowdoin fit- 
ting schools that were specially 
designated for Bowdoin prepara- 
tory work, and Teaching Institutes 
conducted by Bowdoin faculty 
members, all aided the college to 
reach the schools in many import- 
ant ways.

schools and the colleges has been 
supplanted by "the professional

Need Of Barrier Not Proved 

The barrier across the Chemistry Building U-drive. the 
object of frequent comment, most of it unfavorable, since its 
erection last week, has perhaps received more attention than it 
has deserved. 

The need, however, for such a barrier has not yet been 
proved to the ORIENT'S satisfaction. It would seem that the 
whole situation could have been handled in a more dignified 
way. Last fall the College erected signs forbidding parking on 
the drive, but no strong effort was otherwise made to prohibit 
this parking. Without any compulsion, students, naturally 
wishing to save a few steps, continued to use the driveway for 
a parking place when having classes in Sills Hall or the Parker 
Cleaveland Chemistry Building. No penalty Vwas invoked until, 
without a public warning, the posts were installed Thursday. 

It is up to the College to decide where it wants to permit 
parking and where it doesn't. Other colleges have established 
traffic and parking regulations, regulations which have been ac- 
cepted without the necessity of closing a road or drive. The 
problem could have been taken to the Student Council or it 
could have been tied to the regulation that requires student 
cars to be registered with the Dean's office. 

The closing of the drive was a negative solution. A posi- 
tive one would be to reopen the drive for traffic and to handle 
the general parking regulations in a more concrete way. 

Letter To The Editor 

To the Editor: 

I have "been noticing, for a se- 
mester and a half now, the gold 
cross on the wall in back of the 
organ in Chapel. I have thought 
about it and tried to think of a 
reason for its presence, but I 
can't see one. Maybe it was put 
up to show visitors that there are 
no Communists here, but only God 
fearing Christians. I doubt though 
the validity of this answer even in 
pressured times as these. 

In the past when objection to 
Chapel on the grounds that it is a 
religious service were raised the 
Administration said that the ser- 
vices were secular. This can no 
longer be claimed because the 
very presence of the cross (and a 
particular denominational cross at 
that) turns what could, by a 
stretching of the imagination, be 
called a secular service into a reli- 
gious one. The fact is that Chapel 
was a religious service anyway be- 
cause of the hymns, the respon- 
sive readings and the prayers. And 
the cross makes it more so. 

Chapel itself isn't too bad. Its 
a nice place to wander into to 
<*tt out of the rain and if the 
Speech isn't too good, you can al- 
ways look at the murals or the 
flags. But the cross keeps catch- 
ing your eye, constantly remind- 
ing you that this is a religious 
service in which you are compelled

For New Approach To 
Education Principles 

[Continued from Page /] 
educators of the teachers' colleges 
and the state departments of 
education" Mr. Hazelton said. 

Then turning back to the re- 
sponsibility of tbe liberal arts col- 
lege to the general student in high 
school, the speaker stated that he 
believed that there were two clear 
reasons for this. "First." he said, 
"a liberal arts college is part of 
the whole system of education in 
the country. It is not the only part 
nor does it exist for all students 
. . . But the liberal arts by their 
very nature are at the center of 
the educational process." 

Mr. Hazelton defined these 
liberal arts as "those fields of 
knowledge that have been gradual- 
ly — and most certainly not arbi- 
tarily — developed by men through 
the ages as the most significant 
organization of the knowledge, the 
ideas, and the values that one 
generation must transmit to an- 

The speaker said that "the col- 
lege as an institution consists of 
teachers — men who are in a very 
real sense professional educators." 
He added that these men should be 
"prepared to judge this process of 
education not only in college but 
in the years before college for both 
those who will continue their edu- 
cation and those who will not." 

"In short," Mr. Hazelton stated, 
"this responsibility of the liberal 
arts college is to the total educa- 
tional system of the nation and be- 
cause of the central position of the 
liberal arts in the educational pro- 
cess it is a special responsibility." 
It means the speaker said "that 
the liberal arts college through its 
teachers and through its graduates 
who are teachers with interest, ex- 
perience, and educational judg- 
ment should criticize and assist the 
other parts of the educational 
system in those problems not di- 
rectly related to college prepara- 

The Second Reason 
The second reason the responsi- 
bility of the liberal arts college to 
the general student in high school 
was one of greater immediate self- 
interest, Mr. Hazelton said. He 
pointed Out that many high school 
students are now going to some 
kinds of colleges every year with- 
out many of the requirements 
usually associated with the liberal 
arts college. 

The speaker then said that "un- 
less the liberal arts college is to 
spend more and more of its time 
in elementary instruction — some- 
thing which it now does much 
more than it did 25 or 50 years 
ago — Bowdoin and colleges like 
it will have to alter what they be- 
lieve the best kind of education to 
be. Pointing out that they were ap- 
proaching the point where they 
would "not be free to choose 
whether they will alter their ideas 
of education," Mr. Hazelton said 
that "as one or several kinds of 
colleges change what they demand 
from secondary schools, the whole 
structure of education inevitably 
shifts, and it may be that the 
foundation cracks." 

Competition In Admissions 
Turning to what ho called the 
"serious matter of competition 
among colleges in admissions," the 
speaker mentioned that the differ- 
ent varieties of colleges that have 
grown up since 1900 in America 
were almost equal to the change 
in high school enrollment. 

He said, "But it Is significant 
that no new colleges have grown 
up during this time which impose 
greater demands on school pre- 
paration. One college or one kind 
of college then cannot continue to 
require more school preparation, if 
all the other colleges are requiring 
less — or at least a very different 
order of preparation. 

"Bowdoin, to be specific, willnot 
be able to continue to expect

Personally, we are not super- 
stitious, but we, do think it is cur- 
ious that the Daily Princetonian 
picked Friday the 13th of March 
to launch a campaign against that 
university's 100% rushing system. 
In a rather smug editorial the 
paper took the stand that some of 
today's undergraduates just were 

schools to offer to its college pre- 
paratory students the fundamental 
grammer of at least one foreign 
language, enough mathematics to 
permit the college freshman to do 
serious work in that subject or 
enough science and social science 
to give him before he comes to 
college some sense of the scope and 
discipline of those subjects. 

Less A Matter Of Promise 

"Neither can Bowdoin and the 
liberal arts colleges expect to re- 
main academically healfhy if they 
are forced lo draw their students 
only from a withered college pre- 
paratory program. That would 
make admissions less and less a 
matter of academic promise and 
more and more a totalling up of 
particular school credits. 

Mr. Hazelton said "that things 
are not yet as "black as this at 
present," but he warned that it 
would be foolish to choose to 
ignore it in the hope that it would 
go away. "I think," he concluded, 
"many of you will agree that we 
may in a very short time be ap- 
proaching this if the liberal arts 
colleges do not take their proper 
place in forming the best education 
for all the students of secondary

not the old eating club type. The 
Princetonian went on to suggest 
that the administration might not 
be serving the better interests of 
he school by admitting students 
from New York and New Jersey 
high schools who did not have the 
proper social background to fit in- 
to the club system. 

Faculty and -undergraduate 
protest alike forged the student 
paper to retract its haughty stand. 
Faculty members blew their tops 
at the "sheer smugness" of the 
"Social acceptibility" criterion. 
Pointing out that the Princeton- 
ian's attitude could result in 
another blast of the "country 
club" brand of criticism which is 
frequently aimed at Princeton. 
The undergraduates protested that 
"sociability" ought not to be a 
prerequisite to admission. The 
Princetonian then hung its head 
and said they did not really mean 
it, at least not all of it. The paper 
is now *being criticized for its 
"equivocating stand."

Much Materia* Wiitem Recently 
On Concept Of 'Academic Freedom' 

By T. Ellis MeKinnegr, Jr. '54 

What does academic freedom knowledge is important, and be- 

mean today? This is a question 

upon which the attention of the kno w l e dge is most important of 

American public has become fo- 
cused within the last few weeks 
as a result of the spread of con- 
gressional investigations into the 
activities of our colleges and uni- 

Recently many articles and 
books have been written in news- 
papers and magazines regarding 
the subject. Much news has ap- 
peared in print and over the radio 
about the conduct of various, in- 
vestigations. News columnists, 
educators, and scholars have at- 
tempted to examine the concept 
of "Academic Freedom" in order 
to determine what it means to us 
in view of tbe current world situa- 

Freedom For Knowledge 

Robert M. Maclver in a current 
New York Times Magazine article 
entitled "The Freedom To Search 
For Knowledge" defines academic 
freedom as "the freedom of the 
educator to do his proper work, 
to fulfill his function, to render to 
his society the special service that 
he has to offer." Maclver also 
says "his work is to learn and to 
teach and this is what every gen- 
uine scholar wants above all to do. 
That is what he is appointed to 
do. That is what the institution of 
learning is for. Here lies its uni- 
que function its primary mission 
in society." 

Real Meaning 

Several days before Maclver's 
article was published, The As- 
sociation of America Universities 
issued a statement on "The 
Rights and Responsibilities of 
Universities and Their Faculties." 
Speaking for its 37 members, the 
53 year ok) association defined 
"academic freedom with these 

/"A university must be hospit- 
able . to an infinitive variety of 
skills' and viewpoints.. .Its whole 
spirit requires investigation, cri- 
ticism; and presentation of ideas 
in an atmosphere of freedom and 
mutual confidence. This is the 
real meaning of academic free- 
dom. It is essential that tbe fac- 
ulty of a university be guaranteed 
this freedom by its governing 
board, and that the reasons for 
the guarantee be understood by 
the public." 

Legal Limits 

Academic freedom according to 
Maclver is the freedom to reach 
conclusions through scholarly in- 
vestigations.. "It does not imply 
the freedom to "act" according to 
your conclusions, if such action is 
against the law. It is emphatically 
not a freedom to conspire to over- 
throw the government or to incite 
others to do so. But it embraces 
the freedom of the serious stu- 
dent of government to reach and 
express conclusions regarding its 
nature and regarding the good or 
evil results of this or that form of 

The following significant ex- 
cerpts also appeared in Maclver's 
essay "Freedom To Seek Know- 

"Academic freedom is important 
to us all because knowledge is 
important, because the search of 

cause the spirit of the search of 

all... Knowledge is power and 
knowledge is opportunity . . . On 
knowledge alone can intell ig en t 
policy be based and successful ac- 
tion be carried through . . . 

Dash is the creation of the com- 
mittee which wished to make a 
estimation of what is the best time 
to leave breakfast and still make 
chapel." The tipsters are predict- 
ing that the times will take from 
30 seconds to 4 minutes. The fact 
that only one Amherst student 
said he didn't know where the 
chapel was indicates that the event 
will be wide open. 

"The one institution supremely 
dedicated to the spread of eniiflht- 
enment is the institution of learn* 
ing. Its individual members have 
interests and prejudices like other 
men. They go wrong like other 
men. But together, each in his 
own field they seek for knowledge 
and thus the institution is re- 
deemed. It is the belief in. the 
supreme importance of the free- 
dom to seek knowledge which 
unites them. 

"Without that belief and its 
triumphant vindication in our col- 
leges and universities the right 
of a man to think for himself, to 
inquire, to have his own opinions, 
would lack any sure foundation. 
Democracy in a world of inces- 
santly whirling propaganda, would 
have no strong defense. And civil- 
ization, what remained of it, would 
become no more than- a mesh of 
techniques designed for the en- 
slavement of body and mind, as 
it was in Hitler's Germany, as it 
is in Soviet Russia. 

Spirit Kadaagered 

"Only the spirit that animates 
the endless search for knowledge 
can save us from these things. 
This spirit must continue to flour- 
ish outside our universities as well 
as within their walla. It is the 
same spirit that keeps, the press 
free. It is back of the democratic 
willingness to let the view of 
every group be decently heard... 

"It (this spirit) is now endan- 
gered. In every society there are 
always those, who fearful for 
their interests or secure in their 
domaticisms. are ready to sup-

Johnson Collections 
Currently On Display 

The drawings currently being 
exhibited at the Walker Art Build- 
ing are from the collections of 
James Bowdoin III and Henry 
Johnson "74. ? 

James Bowdoin obtained the 
drawings which are a portion of 
this exhibit; while he was in t he- 
diplomatic service for the United 
States Government in Europe. He 
brought them back with him when 
he returned in 1808. and they were 
given to tbe College through the 
terms of his will when he died in 
1811. There were 142 drawings in 
the collection which the College 
received in 1813. , 

At the time of his death the 
collection was evaluated at $7.50 
by the appraises of his estate. The 
current value of the group is, of 
course, many times what it was 
J 40 years ago.

Curator of the Art Collections

By Robert M. Hunt '54, ORIENT Sports Editor 

Wfth the passing of the Boston Braves to Milwaukee. Boston 

baseball fans will also be without the services of sportscaster Jim 

Britt. Whether Jim will be missed as much as the Braves is object 

of fireat speculation. During the yean when the Red Sox were being 

picked for the pennant, the early postwar yean, Jim Britt, Torn Hus- 

gey, and a colleague who escape* memory at the moment, held forth 

at Fenway Park. When "the voice of the Red Sox" Curt Gowdy took 

over, Jim packed his bags and headed for Braves Field to carry on 

with one Leg Smith, who previously had a sports program on a local 

Boston radio station consulting of announcing the day's scores of the 

baseball games. So the "long drives" that were either going for extra. 

)ases or into the stands and for some- unknown reason got caught by 

he outfielders could only be ascribed to the Braves. Tom Hussey is 

low doing telegraphic recreations and other assorted jobs for Messer 

Jowdy * r -"-4la**'safl K 

Although quite a few of the fans thought Mister Britt was prone 

lo the glittering generalities of the game, compared to Bill Stern, he 

is a bush-leaguer. Every man that plays for any team is a Frank 

'MerriweH and there is a story of some phenosninal event or coincidence 

(connected with him. Either the lad had polio when a child or was 
advised by the President or some other noted dignitary to quit throw- 
ing rivets and try throwing a baseball. Slam has told so many fan- 
tastic yarns that it is hard to pin one down as being outstanding. 
One that is told quite often is the Stern version of Abe Lincoln's dying 
words. As honest Abe lay on his death bed he called for General 
Abner Doubleday, the man who according to most sources is the 
originator of baseball. According to Stern the great emancipator 
told Abner to "keep., baseball alive. In the trying days ahead the 
country will need it," And he fell back on the pillow and expired. 
Whether this tale is the most flabbergasting story ever told is ques- 
tionable, but it is typical -of all of them. There is hardly an American 
oi renew** who is not connected to the world of sports by Stern. 

Thomas Alva Edison, for instance, would have .been greatly sur- 
prised to hear that his deafness was the result of a pitched ball that 
hit him when he was a semi-pro ball player, which he never was. 
Edison's deafness is pretty generally attributed to a conductor who- 
boxed his ears when he was a candy seller on a train. The pitcher 
who threw the ball, according to Stem, was Jessie James. Stern 
generally keeps the name of his hero a secret until the very last line 
and then by a sentence which has become almost a trademark with 
him, Stern says, "And. that man was — ." Then the name. 

It has been said that one of. Stern's former writers confessed that 
quite often he left the last part blank to be filled in at the last moment 
by whoever happened to be prominent in the news that week. 

One type of yarn that Stern seems to have an obsession for is 
that which concerns a famous person redirecting another younger 
man's career who is later to become equally famous. In one such 
instance Grantland Rice was hanging around a gym one afternoon 
watching a skinny kid sparring in the ring. Later he heard the 
youngster singing in the shower room. Rice, claims Stern, took the 
young man aside and told him to get out of boxing and try singing. 
And that boy was .... Frank Sinatra. Fiction or fact it makes a 
good story anyway.

five times in the sixth inning, and 
Bowdom held a 14-5 margin going 
into the ninth when the visitors 
scored their final four tallies.

starter was replaced by portly Win 

The group, whese activities are 
supported by a Blanket Tax ap- 
propriation, plans to climb Mount 
Katahdin sometime later this 
spring, while skiing on Mount 
Washington is still possible. 
Several fishing excursions are al- 
so planned. 

The* winter the Outing Club 
took three trips to Stowe, Ver- 
mont and.- one trip to Jackson, 
New Hampshire. 

In an attempt to supplement 
their equipment, the dub has add- 
ed' a new ski rack and a Coleman 
lantern. Additional cooking gear 
is the next project along that line. 

Those who would enjoy partici- 
pating in the club's activities are 
urged to contact any of the of-

Although we generally are as 
scrupulous as possible in not notic- 
ing anything on campus, this past 
week it has been practically im- 
possible to dodge the fact that 
there Is a certain aura of occupied 
Berlin in the vicinity of Parker 
<?leaveland Hall. We are referring, 
of course, to those lovely black 
and white posts that block en- 
trance to the drive in front of that 
building. We view the situation 
with some alarm, almost expect- 
ing daily to see a guardhouse and 
armed guards patrolling the area. 
We do note, however, with some 
relief, that the ROTC is still drill- 
ing at the other end of campus. 

Presuming, however, that the 
Chemistry department is not con- 
structing a hydrogen bomb there, 
and that the building is not going 
to be considered off limits for non- 
military personnel, we do wonder 
just why that particular location 
was picked to erect posts upon. 
The situation is fraught with 

We had a few ideas of our own, 
which we thought quite clever un- 
till we began to fear rumors con- 
cerning this latest boon to the 
beauty of our under-decorated 
campus. One rumor, from 'a most 
unreliable source, has it that the 
posts will be used to hang the 
new state flags in the chapel dur- 
ing sunny days and poossibly over 
the Ivy weekend. This would give 
the campus a rather festive sort 
of state fair look, adding a good 
deal of color to the drab green 
of the pines.

wear and tear on the pavement has 
been reduced to practically 
nothing. This bill will save untold 
amounts of money in repair bills, 
over a period of time, and will dis- 
pense with the necessity of having 
the di-ive plowed out in the winter. 
We laud the president, or whoever 
was responsible for the posts, for 
having a practical answer to the 
college deficit. 

Economy Measures 

Along this line of economy, and 
making up deficits, we would like 
to make a few suggestions to add 
to the revenue of the College. 
These posts could very easily be 
converted into parking meters, 
which, as everyone knows, are one 
of the most popular forms of muni- 
cipal revenue going these days. 
Other meters could be set up at

To supplement the meters, 
whose cost certainly would not be 
more thin the cos't of the blocked 
off drive, the Administration could 
set up a court to try violations and 
levy fines. We are quite sure that 
there are members of the faculty 
fully qualified to advise the Ad* 
ministration concerning the 
technical matters involved in 
creating a court. 

We have not forgotten enforce- 
ment of these laws. Our invaluable 
watchmen could be supplied with 
badges and whistles to serve as a 
temporary police force until a per- 
manent body could be established. 
Uniforms, which would involve a 
considerable outlay of capital, need 
not necessarily be a requisite. Or, 
if a separate body of policemen 

at heart, has suggested that these should run into more money than 
are to be used as hitching posts I the Administration cares to spend, 
for any horses that the students or j a s ,P e ^ ial _^ r _ a _ n< ; h ! _ ^ th *_._ RO XP 
faculty might see fit to have hang- 
ing around. We rather doubt it, 
though. Far more plausible is the 
suggestion that bicycle racks, such 
as are often found outside public 
schools will eventually be erected 
in place of the posts. 

One person, of a more or less 
militaristic turn of mind, believes 
that the posts are forms for anti- 
aircrat gun emplacements. This 
would have the college a sort of 
subsidiary to the air base. Some- 
one of a not too scientific mind 
thinks that Mr. Potter is drilling 
for oil. 

We, however, do not take a 
pessimistic view of the situation. 
It seems to us that at long last, 
the administration is making a 
positive effort to wipe out the 
yearly deficit of the College. In 

could be pressed into service. Di- 
recting traffic should be a valuable 
bit of extra training for those 
ROTC men who eventually do see 
service in the Transportation 

Speed Trap 
Our final idea is perhaps too bold 
to bo of any practical value im- 
mediately, but it should gross a 
most satisfactory income if it 
could be put into practice. We are 
suggesting that Route 1 be divert- 
ed through the college road, and, 
with a sufficient number of police- 
men on hand, a rather effective 
speed trap v. ould result. Of course, 
there may be some repercussions 
if the State finds out about it, but 
it should make quite a bit of money 
for awhile. We can hardly wait to 
see motorcycle policemen hiding 

barring the drive to automobiles, behind the Chapel.

Young Republicans To 
Hold Interest Campaign; 
Possible Trip Planned 

At an important meeting of the 
Bowdoin Young Republican Club 
held on Thursday, March 17, the 
problem of how the Young Repub- 
licans could most benefit the 
Republican voters of Brunswick 
was discussed. 

Plans for a house to house can- 
vass to interest voters in the 
Republican Party was the most 
important idea brought forth, and 
it received the almost unanimous 
support of those present This 
question will be more thoroughly 
discussed at the next meeting 
scheduled for the first week of 

The recent trip to the Maine 
State Legislature was discussed in 
detail and it was the concensus of 
opinion that the trip was a big 
success. As suggested by David 
Nichols, Chairman of the Maine 
Council of Young Republicans, in a 
talk with William A. Fickett '54 
and Fred O. Smith '56 at Augusta, 
the group made plans to send dele- 
gates to the forthcoming New 
England Council Meeting to be 
held at Portsmouth, N. H. in May. 

The executive committee, com- 
posed of the four officers, was as- 
signed the task of drawing up a 
club constitution before the next 

After the minutes of the previous 
meeting were read by Secretary 
Smith, President Fickett gave a 
short history of the National 
Federation of Young Republicans 
and the status of the Bowdoin 
group in the Federation. 

President Fickett adjourned the 
meeting, expressing his confidence 
in the group and inviting all in- 
terested men to the next meeting.

The Student Curriculum Com- 
mittee has reached the following 
conclusions and respectfully sub- 
mits the following recommenda- 

1. Student Curriculum Commit- 
tee wholeheartedly agrees with 
the overwhelming majority of the 
students and faculty in concluding 
that the science requirement 
plays a necessary and important 
part in the liberal arts cirricu- 
lum. . . . 

2. . . . the Student Curriculum 
Committee concludes that there 
is no compelling need for radical 
changes in the science require- 
ment. However, the Committee 
believes that certain changes, 
hereinafter noted, would be bene- 

3. There is an elementary 
science presently offered which . . 
might well be accepted in fulfill- 
ment of the requirement. That 
course is Astronomy. Astronomy 
employs a methodology and ap- 
proach that classes it as a science 
on an equal level with chemistry, 
physics and biology. . . . 

It feels that the problem ap- 
proach which requires the student 
to solve rigorously problems. . . . 
should be expanded in length and 
difficulty in order to raise this 
phase of the course to a level 
equal with those of the other ele-

Thurston, Beacham Get 
New Positions On Staff 

C Richard Thurston '54 was re- 
cently appointed- as an Assistant 
Business Manager of the ORIENT. 

Thurston will serve in his new 
capacity along with James A. 
Cook '54. His old position as Cir- 
culation Manager will be filled by 
Harold Richard Beacham, Jr. '56. 

Thurston, -who lives in Milton, 
Massachusetts, is a member of the 
Kappa Sigma fraternity. He was a 
member of the Track Team in his 
freshman year and was on the 
Varsity Track Team until he was 
injured in Interfraternity Sports. 
After this he acted as manager of 
the team. He is also a member of 
the College Band.

mentary courses. . . . 

4. The (Committee) recognizes 
the existence of arguments which 
lead to a large majority of the 
students polled in favor "termin- 
al" science courses. . . .(and) the 
arguments against such a plan. . . 
However, a compromise proposal 
has been offered which the Com- 
mittee supports. Professor Root 
proposes that Chemistry 2 only be 
divided into terminal and non-ter- 
minal groups. The terminal 
group. . . .emphasis could be plac- 
ed on material of greater carry 
over value and interest to the non- 1 
scientist. . . . 

On the other hand, the non-ter- 
minal group could be conducted 
with greater chemical and math- 
ematical rigo than the present 
course. . . . 

It is not certain whether such 
a plan would be applicable to the 
other two elementary, sciences. 
However, the Committee recom- 
mends further study in this 
matter. . . . 

5. Although a sizeable number 
of students are in favor of institut- 

ing a general science course, to 
satisfy the science requirement, 
the Committee agrees with the 
tenor of the opinion expressed by 
the faculty in the science depart- 
ments and other colleges and op- 
poses such action. . .- .The Com- 
mittee feels that much of the value 
of a science course lies in the pres- 
ent elementary science courses. 
Because of the lack of facilities 
available for such a general 
course, these phases would have 
to be minimized. ... A general 
science course would tend to dis- 
cuss science and not be in itself 
study in a science. . . . 

The Committee does feel, how- 
ever, that a course dealing with 
the methodology and history of 
science would be an extermely 
valuable addition to the curricu- 
lum. It is recommended that such 
a course be given to students with 
Junior standing or above, and that 
it should have as a prerequisite 
at least one year of laboratory 
science. . . . The Committee also 
recommends that this course be 
accepted as the second year of 
science for students electing the

now has a new lecture hall, much 
larger than their old one. . . . 
Furthermore, there are many dis- 
advantages to the present ruling

7. While a few students have 
severely criticized the present ele-

sor Roe received his A.B. Degree 
at Princeton in 1936. From 1986 
to 1938 he studied in Harvard De- 
partment of Fine Arts, and from 
1938 to 1940 Professor Roe studied 
at Princeton in the Department 
of Art and Archeology. There h* 
received the degree of Master of 
Fine Arts. 

Professor Roe then returned to 
Harvard where be served as a 
teaching fellow in the Department 
of Fine Arts at Harvard and Rad-

sioned in the Naval Reserve and 
began four years of anti-sub- 
marine service in the Atlantic. 
Pacific, and Carribean theatres. 
At present he is a Lieutenant in 
the Naval Reserve. 

Arriving at Bowdoin in 1946. he 
was made Instructor in Art and 
Curator of the Museum of Fine 
Arts. He was made Assistant 
Professor of Art in 1949. In 1950 
he received his Doctorate from 
Harvard, the subject of his thesis 
being "William Blake's Illustra- 
tions to the Divine . Comedy of 
Dante.'' In the period 1951 to 1962 
he continued his studies of Blake's 
Dante drawings at the British 
Museum in London, having receiv- 
ed a Fulbright Award as a Senior 
Research Fellow. Material from 
his thesis and his studies in Eng-.

Delta Sigma Confederation 
Established In Recent Move 

The formation of the Delta Sigma Confederation, representing 
a new step in Greek letter organizations, has been announced by of- 
fices of the Delta Sigma Fraternity of Bowdoin and the Omega Phi 
Society of Wesleyan. 

Meeting at Bowdoin on Saturday, representatives of the two 
houses drew up an Articles of Confederation which is established on 
the principles of local autonomy and non-discrimination. 

This constitution will be referred to the two houses for final ap- 
proval, but the new confederation, with Bowdoin and Wesleyan as 
charter members, is now in effect. 

The officers of the two houses 
stated in their announcement that 
the reasons for this affiliation were 
best expressed in the preamble to 
the Articles of Confederation: 
"We, the Confederated Chapters 
of Delta Sigma, have united to 
further the concept of social equal- 
ity within fraternal organization; 
we believe that this concept is best 
achieved by common ties in prin- 
ciples and ideals without restrict- 
ing the policies of the individual 

"With this belief in mind, we 
have resolved the following Con- 
stitution based upon the principles 
of local autonomy and non-dis- 

Provision for the admittance of 
any additional desirable chapters, 
holding the same principles and 
ideals, into the Confederation has 
been made in the constitution. 
Both Lift D.U. 

The two chapters were formally 
members of Delta Upsilon Fra- 
ternity, each leaving the national 
fraternity over the issue of local 
option. The Bowdoin Chapter of 
Delta Upsilon left in September 
1961 to form a local "unsullied by 
secret, undemocratic agreements". 
The temporary name, the Delta 
Club, was replaced by that of Delta 
Sigma after several weeks. 

Wesleyan left Delta Upsilon in 
October, 1952 and adopted the 
temporary name, the Omega Phi 
Society, which they used until the 
formation of the Delta Sigma Con- 

The organization of the new con- 
federation is simple, the chairman 
of the group being the president 
of that house which serves as host 
for the annual meeting. There will 
be no necessity of national dues, 
since this host house will serve as 
the clearing house for the business 
of the confederation during that 
year with any necessary expenses 
being borne by that group. 

Wesleyan was represented at the

and announcing roles. 

Unusual for the WBOA elections 
were the closely contested races 
for Program Director and for Chief 
Engineer. In both cases, however, 
the Executive Committee niminee 
won over the floor nominee, as is 
the usual ease. For Program Di-

Post Mortem Attempt By Raiders 
Impedes}Plan To Block Driveway 

By Jonathan Bartlett '53 

Student disapproval of the "iron t On Satuiday 

curtain", the posts blocking off the 
horseshoe-shaped driveway in front 
of Cleaveland Hall, came to a head 
on Friday night and again on Sun- 
day night when the "iron curtain" 
was lifted and the posts were spir- 
ited away. 

In the Friday caper, the four re- 
movable middle posts were taken. 
One was found on the President's 
house; one was found stuffed in 
the cannon on the mall and the 
others, at this writing, have not 
been found at all. The two posts 
were replaced and stayed until 
Sunday when they and one of the 
permanent end posts were pulled 
out and taken away. None of these 
three have turned up. The admin- 
istration has placed some old 
pieces of boiler tube in the gaps 
for the time being. 

The posts were set up about two 
weeks ago to prevent cars from 
parking on the driveway. Parked 
cars, said President Coles, detract- 
ed from the beauty of the building. 
Almost immediately, the posts be- 
came targets of vituperous abuse, 
culminating in the robbery. 

morning, the 
grounds crew was ordered to put up 
a wire across the mouth of the 
drive. Later on in the morning, the 
grounds crew was ordered to take 
down the wire. An innocent bicycle 
rider had run into the wire and 
had been thrown. Outside of the 
wire, the only resort for the Col- 
lege seems to be putting in old 
boiler tubes which aren't worth 
much anyway. 

Besides going to the trouble of 
putting up and replacing posts, the 
College has put itself to a great 
deal of trouble trying to find the 
correct color scheme for the posts. 
When they were first installed, 
they were black. Very shortly 
thereafter they were black and 
white. This had the advantage of 
making them visible after dark. 
But aesthetics seems to have won 
out over pure practicality; at last 
report the posts had been painted 

On the whole, the College does 
not seem to be so pert rubed in this 
matter as the administration. One 
faculty member stated privately

for the second straight term. 

For the first time in over five 
years, the station ended the year in 
the black, according to Business 
Manager Wallace A'. Stoneman. 
The present $485.00 surplus, most 
of which will be spent before school 
closes, is largely due to tighter ' 
control on long distance phone I 
calls and an increased appropria- 
tion from the Blanket Tax Com- 

In his "state of the station" mes- 
sage, Rayment cited the addition 
of a teletype machine and the con- 
tract with the Eastern States Ra- 
dio Corporation providing the sta- 
tion with its own classical records 
at no cost as the most significant 
achievements of the year. He added ' 
that addition of WBOA to the j 
mailing lists of Capitol, RCA-Vic-| 
tor and Columbia Records had 
swelled the popular Record library

signs of changing their stand on 
delayed initiation. Two members 
reported that their houses showed 
signs of "coming around", while 
two other representatives reported 
that their houses were still solidly 
against the idea. The representa- 
tive of one of the two houses orig- 
inally supporting the idea said that 
his fraternity might go ahead and 
delay their initiation even if the 
plan for the College as a whole 
was not adopted. 

Can Cash Checks 

The request by the Council that 
students be allowed to cash ROTC 
checks in the Union Bookstore and 
the Bursar's Office has been ac- 
cepted by the College, it was learn- 
ed. A $25 limit on checks had been 
in eflect which made it Impossible 
to cash -the-ROTe checks 
usually ran to a figure two or three 
dollars more than this sum. 

The Council requested the Stu- 
dent Curriculum Committee to

Plans for the sponsorship of 
foreign students under the Bow- 
doin Plan for 1953-54 are not com- 
plete as yet, but all twelve houses 
will sponsor men under the Plan, 
and detailed arrangements have 
been made in a number of cases. 

Alpha Rho Upsilon will continue 
sponsorship of Koyu Kinjo. of 
Okinawa, and a second Ryukyuan, 
Shogo Moriyama, who was at Bow- 
doin from 1950 to 1952, will return 
to complete h's college work 
under sponsorship of Kappa 

Zeta Psi will sponsor Robbert 
C Silvius '56 of Venezuela, and 
Delta Sigma will continue sponsor- 
ship of Pertti O. Lipas '55 of Fin- 
land. Akira Nakane '54 of Japan 
will complete his college work 
under sponsorship of Theta Delta 

Delta Kappa Epsilon has select- 
ed a new man, Boris O. Bruzs of 
Latvia, who has beeen studying in 
France, while Psi Upsilon has 
selected Carsten T. Moller of Den- 
mark. No definite arrangements 
have been made as yet by the re- 
maining fraternity groups. 

Wilder Explains History 
Of Chapel Flags; Claims 
They Help Acoustics 

The assistant to the President, 
Philip. S. Wilder, satisfied a curious 
Chapel audience by explaining the 
presence of the newly acquired 
Chapel flags and by giving a short 
sketch of the history of each flag. 

These flags of the thirteen 
original states and the State of 
Maine flag have been hung in the 
Chapel to improve the acoustics. 

"They have not been arranged in 
a haphazard fashion but in order 
of seniority, working from the en- 
trance door toward the platform 
and alternating from left to right 
down the aisle," Mr. Wilder said. 

The American and Bowdoin Col- 
lege flags on the speaking plat- 
form were presented to the Bow- 
doin ROTC unit by the State of 
Maine on May 3, 1917, a gift of 
Percival P. Baxter '98. They were 
presented at ceremonies on Whit- 
tier Field to President William De- 
Witt Hyde in his last public act as 
the Bowdoin President. 

In closing Mr. Wilder expressed 
the hope that the new flags would 
be" recognized as an integral part 
of the Chapel.

College Dixieland Band Engaged 
For 10 Week Stand On Cape Cod 

The Polar Bear Five, Bowdoin's 
own dixieland band, is rapidly 
making itself known around many 
of New England's colleges. '► 

Starting with jazz concerts here 
on the campus during housepai ties, 
the Band has gradually worked its 
way up to the point where engage- 
ments at other colleges' parties are 
its specialty. 

The Band made its debut on 
campus early in 1952 when a few 
students got together at parties 
and played more- or 1 ess basic 
dixieland tunes like "Tin Roof 
Blues" and "Jada." The jazz was 
pretty unorganized, but it was a 
start. After several months the 
quality of the music improved and 
more songs were mastered. No 
major engagements were obtained, 
although a successful cdncert at 
the ATO house was the big event 
for the Band. 

Band Reorganized Last Fall 

Last fall things started out on a 
solid foot with the appearance of 
the Band during nearly every foot- 
ball weekend. Concerts at the Delta 
Sigma, Psi U and DKE houses gave 
an indication of the apparent pop- 
ularity of the Band with Bowdoin's 
students and their dates. A reor- 
ganization of personnel resulted in 
an even better brand of music last 
December. At a dance at West- 
brook, one of the first outside jobs 
for the Band, they gave a good per- 
formance, supplying danceable 
music along with dixieland. This 
was the first paying job the Band 

had had. • 

In January the Band got an en- 
gagement at the DKE house at 
Colby College. The party there was 
a great success, and most people 
agreed the credit was due to Bow- 
doin's jazz band. Winter House- 
party saw two more successful con- 
certs, one at the Psi U house and 
the other at the Beta house. The 
latter drew the largest audience 
ever to attend one of the band's 
concerts. Another good perform- 
ance at the ATO house during the 
Campus Chest Weekend followed, 
as did a job at the Zete house sev- 
eral weeks later. 

Summer Job Obtained 

By this time five of the members 
had decided they may be good 
enough to try and get a job play- 
ing jazz somewhere this summer. A 
letter to an agent, several weeks 
of anticipation, and a favorable 
answer produced an all-summer 
job on Cape Cod. The five members 
began rehearsing once or twice a 
week in January. They polished up 
their old numbers and increased 
their repertoire with many new 
ones. For several weeks they did a 
weekjy program on WBOA. With a 
job for the summer and countless 
opportunities for outside jobs dur- 
ing the spring semester, it was de- 
cided that a new and more original 
name be given to the "Bowdoin 
Jazz Band." The name of the 
"Polar Bear Five" was agreed

Kirkland To Deliver 
'Academic Freedom In 
PeriT Lecture, May 4 

Frank Munsey Professor of 
American History at Bowdoin, Eld- 
ward C. Kirkland, will deliver his 
important lecture "Academic 
Freedom in Peril" in Smith Audi- 
torium, May 4, at 8:15 p.m. 

The talk is being given under 
the auspices of the local chapter 
of the American Association of 
University Professors. Kirkland is 
a past president of the national 

The speaker has been promin- 

tntly concerned with the defense 
nd definition of academic free- 
dom. He has served as chairman 
of that organization's committee on 
Academic Freedom and Tenure, 
while he headed its committee in- 
vestigating breaches of academic 
freedom in the United States. 

Professor Kirkland's influential 
j position on the subject of academic 
eedom is shown by the attack of 
illiam F. Buckley Jr. in "God 
d Man at Yale". In this book 
uckley uses several quotes from 
lecture given by Professor Kirk- 
land as part of Cornell's sympo- 
sium on "'America's Freedom and 
Responsibility in the Contempo- 
rary Crisis" in 1949. 

At Bowdoin Since 1930 
A native of Bellows Falls, Ver- 
mont, Professor Kirkland grad- 
uated from Dartmouth. He receiv- 
ed his A.M. and his Ph. D. from 
Harvard and went to Brown as an 
Instructor in History in 1924. He 
became an Assistant Professor 
there in 1925. Coming to Bowdoin 
in 1930, Professor Kirkland be- 
came a full professor the next 

The holder of an honorary deg- 
ree from Dartmouth, Professor 
Kirkland is a prolific writer. His 
"History of American Economic 
Life" is a standard college text- 
book in that field, while many of 
his lectures have been published in 
book form. 

Land, Industrialization,

Chief Philippine Issues 

James A. Storer, Assistant Pro- 
fessor of Economics, discussed the 
current problems facing the Philip- 
pines, showed slides of the country, 
and gave some facts about the is- 
lands in his lecture of Monday, 
April 27, sponsored by the Political 
Forum in the Moulton Union 

Land and agriculture, mdustrial-

on the United States are the chief 
issues currently facing the Philip- 
pines, he said.

ber that many of the problems in 
the Philippines were brought on by 
foreign countries. Professor Storer 
stated that the Philippines face a 
hard struggle to achieve complete 
independence. He said that the 
present government is only inter-

When the Pandemonium had 
subsided the victors returned to 

damnation in the next world. Dr.

Student Curriculum Committee's 
Start Indicates Campus Value 

By Douglas A, 

The Student Curriculum Com- 
mittee was created last December 
by an overwhelming majority of 
the students who believed . that 
there should be an undergraduate 
group to express student opinions 
on matters concerning the curri- 

For five months the Committee 
has been working on various prob- 
lems in order to carry out this 
idea. So far. it has prepared four 
reports, concerning the sophomore 
course load, a typing course, the 
final examination period and the 
science requirement. Other re- 
ports are now under consideration 
and will be forwarded to the Presi- 
dent before the end of the year. 

In these reports the Committee 
has made suggestions, recommend- 
ations and comp'aints about vari- 
ous phases of the curriculum. It has 
tried to express student opinion to- 
gether witfi information gathered 
from other sources, such as inter- 
views with members of the faculty 
and administration, and corres- 
pondence with other colleges. 
Useful To All 

Through these reports, the Com- 
mittee has shown that it can be 
useful to the students, th*» faculty 
and the administration. First, it 
can suggest solutions to minor 
problems in which all that Is need- 
ed is a method of consulting with 
the administration and faculty. 

Instances of such problems were 
the placing of ROTC exams, the 
use of more examination rooms, 
and the permission for smoking 
during exams. In these cases, the 
administration expressed their ap- 
preciation for the student opinion, 

Chalmers '53 

because there is no conflict of in- 
terest, simply a desire to solve the 
prob.'em in the most equitable way. 
The Committee provides the here- 
tofore absent voice for the stu- 

Secondly, the Committee can 
suggest new courses or procedures 
which perhaps have not come to 
the attention of the faculty or on 
which student opinion is welcome 
as an indication of student reaction 
to proposed courses of action. Such 
was the case in the recommenda- 
tions for a typing course, general 
science course (not for the re- 
quirement),' and the acceptance of 
the Astronomy course as fulfilling 
the science requirement. 
Express Reaction 

Thirdly, the Committee can ex- 
press student reaction to present 
policies and courses. For example, 
the reoort concerning !"5t Sopho- 
more course load including non- 
credit ROTC. 

Undoubtedly there are other 
functions which the Committee 
might perform, and it is hoped that 
they will be explored in the future. 
It has been shown, however, that 
there are important functions that 
can be accomplished through the 
Committee, and for which there is 
no other existing body. 

There are, of course, obstacles 
which the Committee must avoid 
or overcome. In the beginning, 
many students and faculty mem- 
bers felt that the Committee 
might become merely a sounding 
board for wild student suggestions, 
enreasoned and immature. The 
record of the Committee so far has .

Kirkland Lecture Important 

The question of academic freedom since the start of the 
Cold War has been becoming increasingly important, particular- 
ly in the last few months. This problem has arisen within col- 
lege walls before, but. never has it become so much of a na- 
tional issue, an issue which has received so much attention from 
the press. Changed relationships, between education and the 
general public which could result from the present hearings on 
the problem would be important whether they were desirable 
or undesirable. 

Although the problem of academic freedom has not direct- 
ly touched Bowdoin College, it is a matter which should inter- 
est the College Community as a whole, very deeply. Those 
interested should take advantage of the opportunity to hear 
Professor Edward C. Kirkland when he lectures on "Academic 
Freedom in Peril" in Smith Auditorium next Monday evening. 
A past national president of the American Association of Uni- 
versity Professor, Professor Kirkland has long made his stand 
on academic freedom clear. In 1949 he addressed Cornell 
University on "Academic Freedom and the Community". This 
address, which was later included in "Freedom and the Uni- 
versity", published by the Cornell University Press, drew the 
criticism of William F. Buckley in his "Man and God at Yale". 
The criticism, based on the method used by many critical 
writers, used only those certain portions which would help most 
strongly in proving the point. The published lecture should 
be read in its entity to get Professor Kirkland's complete view 
tin the subject at that time. 

Bowdoin will be eager to see what Professor Kirkland's 
comments on recent events involving academic freedom ate. 

'Silent' Defense Noz^Pqrfect 

"The silent generation" we are called . . . and what pride 
the bright young man who conceived the phrase must have taken 
in his new term. Quite justifiably so too; for it has been added 
to the modern vocabulary which labels everything with a catchy 
phrase or word. Our immediate reaction upon hearing the 
phrase is to squirm a little and try to imagine that it applies to 
another group than us. This reaction would be the same if we 
had been called "noisy" or "jazz" or "lost" for we resent being 
classified at all. We like to think of ourselves as unique and 
distinctive individuals and when someone throws us under the 
semantic classification of "silent" we shout "But wait a minute" 
as if someone had called us "animals" and let it go at that. Why 
do they call us "silent"? Thornton Wilder has a piece appear- 
ing the latest issue of "Harper's" which tries to answer this 
question by diagnosing the symptoms which we seem to possess 
as a group. He is correct in describing the visible signs but he 
is a little superficial in his analysis of the causes. 

He gives two general examples of the characteristics of 
our generation; he says we are apathetic and "dead pan" and 
that we "aim low" in our goals. In the first place he says we 
are not "easily moved to enthusiasm", that there exists a vast 
gulf between us and our parents. He attributes this to an "in- 
determinate authority" in the home where we no longer look on 
the father as "ex officio wise and unanswerable". He sees a 
change in the home from a patriarchy to a matriarchy and a 
hesitation on the part of the mother to assume the new authority 
which she exercises. Hence the child "either learned a silent 
self containment or fell into neurosis". Mr. Wilder has general- 
ized both in his diagnosis and in his use of words; he has over 
, Amplified something which is by mature complex. 

We realize our apathy and our "dead pan" ; we almost take 
pleasure in fashioning a seeming lack of enthusiasm and blase in- 
diiTerencc. This part of our generation's collective nature is 
not so much the result of environmental forces as the people 
who write article* for magazines would like the rest of people 
to think. Our awareness of our apathetic nonchalence is not a 
ngn, however, thai we could peel it off our personalities like 
the skin off an orange at the least provocation. Because we 
fashioned ourselves in the apathetic mould does not mean that 
can destroy the mould and remodel ourselves along differ- 
ent lines. We «rew up in the age of surpassing the superlative; 
each new invention made the last somewhat obsolete; the facil- 
ity of communication and cultural intercourse brought the world 

into our homes (to quote an old cliche) ; we were so frequently 
called «p*M to ehoew i iiatinniwt-- acceptance of tbe mem and Af- 
ferent that this Btorermiir of enthusiasm became a little de- 
pleted. During oar adolescence <an eatremeiV distasteful word 
to one wno is trying to forget that period) we wens the objects 
of the greatest and most diversified quantity of emotional ap- 
peal that it seem* ever beset aa agr We were thrown into the 
advertisers plea for markets, the movies' plea for audiences ; we 
were called upon to throw our emotional selves behind a war 
effort without the opportunity to take aa active part; we came 
to colleges which had been changed by the veteran influence 
and watched with sonar awe and admiration the older and more 
suave manners of these twentieth century men of adventure; 
in all. we had vicariously lived a full life emotionally. The 
apathy which we fashioned was partially a self-satisfaction at 
having lived, partially a vacuum caused by the absence or 
scarcity of emotional reserve, and partially an emulation of the 
older and wiser young men who had preceded us. On top of 
all this is a fatalistic futility which has seeped into our outlook 
for the future from tike world situation, high taxes, and the 
great anathema, the atomic bomb. 

In reviewing these causes we see that they are not all en- 
vironmental influences nor are they self-designated. They show 
us that our apathy is part action and part reaction. The reason 
why we cannot peel this off like an orange peels is because we 
have aged emotionally, because we have become used to this 

apathetic nature and have assimilated it into our collective per- 
sonality. But personality is only the outward sign of our in- 
ward feelings. Human beings are not classified into the "Jazz 
Age", the "Lost Generation", and the "Silent Generation" . . . 
only their personalities. Personality can only last a lifetime 
whereas human qualities are never changed. Mr. Wilder sees 
a reorientation in the interests and direction of the "Silent Gen- 
eration", but it is only a reorientation, a redirection that is taking 
place. Since our interests are changing in their direction one 
cannot assume that our desires, or anything as static as that, are. 
True we are more aware of the world as a unit, but this is only 
a redirected patriotism. True, we are not as passive toward 
the army, or the church, or the college as some of our predeces- 
sors. This is not disloyalty; we are, in reality, more loyal to 
certain universal values which in time make obsolete certain 
features of man-made institutions. Disbelief in the long run 
strengthens one's faith, and as we have learned from the fast 
pace of discovery and improvement, man cannot be expected 
to create institutions with universal and unchanging values but 
must adapt the institution to the conditions of the time. 

Mr. Wilder says that we are aiming low and that we want 
security in our job and domestic life in a "suburban idyll" 
(here he quotes the article in Time on November 5, 195 
which was the well-spring of the term "silent generation") 
talks about the falsity and incompetence in high places as the 
reason for this lowering of goals. He says we have little respect 
for authority and hence shrink from assuming authority our- 
selves. Here he paints us as pictures of righteousness . . . "They 
hate the false and they shrink from the conspicuous roles which 
all but inevitably require a -certain amount of it. 1 find this 
trait very promising. Plato was the first to say that high place 
is best in the hands of those who are reluctant to assume it." 
In quoting this reverred philosopher Mr. Wilder gains support 
for his argument, but he again generalizes and then puts ground- 
work under his generalization with an obscure phrase from the 
works of an unobscure author. The reasons why we are look- 

Warns Of Attack 

President James S. Coles, speak- 
ing in Chapel last Wednesday, ex- 
pressed concern over the attitude 
of many of the fraternities toward 
scholastic achievements at Bow-

a more mature outlook on the 
part of the individual fraternities 
would produce a feeling of pride" 
in scholarship, rather than one of

the sea of turmoil (another trite phrase). He is paying us 
greater respect than we deserve when he says we hate the false-

truth, most of high places are unobtainable, and those that 
are available are so insecure and trouble-wrought that the lower

the "I don't care" is harmless as a phrase uttered, but as a phrase 
applied it can do untold harm. Those who aim at leadership

Reply To Letter On 
Chapel Cross Made 

Dear Mr. Coakley: 

In reply to your tirade against 
chapel and in particular the cross 
which appears at the back of it, I 
would like to remind you that it is 
the symbol of Christianity and is 
not intended to be partisan to any 
specific religious group. 

If you read the offer made to 
you by President Hyde in the Bow- 
doin College Bulletin, you would 
realize that you are attending a 
Christian college which is making 
you a fine Christian offer. Perhaps 
if you thought of the chapel cross 
as a reminder of this offer which 
Bowdoin makes to each of its stu- 
dents, you would not object so 

As for the chapel services, L be- 
lieve that there is something to be 
derived from them whether you 
worship in a church or a syna- 
gogue. There might even be some- 
thing in them for radicals if you 
would take the time to listen. If 
you still object, may I say that 
there is no one standing over you 
to force you to pray when the 
others do.

has been awarded a Fulbright 
Scholarship for 1953-54. 

Bresett, who has been major-

French language in France. This 
grant is approximately one of 240 
made under the provision of the 
Fulbright Act for study in France

Colas Stresses Need

Atmosphere h Henaw 

Warning of the continued attack 
from some quarters on fraternities 
and the fraternity system. Presi- 
dent James S. Coles told a Chapel 
audience last Wednesday that 
"everything possible must be done 
to make our fraternities effective 
instruments of instruction." 

Pointing out that fraternities 
save "contributed very greatly to 
the intellectual life of the college 
community" in the past, the Presi- 
dent pointed out that "they are 
essentially social organizations 
with scholastic aims." 

Presi d en t Coles suggested that 
each fraternity draw up a balance 
sheet which would measure its 
weaknesses and aid to reinforce its 

Speaking of the fraternities, the 
President said, "They must provide 
a domestic environment hospitable 
to the educational ideal. They must 
bring the educational purposes of 
the college to the front of their 
programs. They must reflect and 
promulgate the manners and cus- 
toms which add to, rather than 
detract from, the purposes of the 
college. They must provide places 
where students can work in quiet 
and without interruption." 
Wesleyan Study 

President Coles introduced his 
suhpect by mentioning the results 
of the Wesleyan study which rated 
colleges according to their pro- 
ductivity of scholars per thousand 

He reported that the study re- 
vealed that of the 50 top institu- 
tions, well over half of them were 
liberal arts colleges of similiar 
size and aim. Other facts which 
the study -brought out were that 
institutions with a higher cost of 
attendance are more productive 
than those of lower cost, those in 
the New England and the North 
Central states more productive 
than those elsewhere, those non- 
denominational liberal arts col- 
leges more productive than those 
under church control, and those 
of older origin more productive 
than those more recently founded. 

The President quoted one state- 
ment of the publishers which he 
said might be of particular in- 
terest to Bowdoin: "The study 
clearly reveals certain important 
characteristics of undergraduate 
institutions in the production of 
scholars as defined by the authors 
—'•location: those of the far west 
and south produce relatively few; 
tuition: those with high tuition 
produce a greater number; campus 
social life: those with no active 
fraternity systems produce more 
scholars . . . These and other fact- 
ors evaluated by this study are 
significant both for the educator 
and for the parent concerned with 
his children's choice of a college." 
Implications Great 

He warned that the implications 
of this statement were great. He 
said that, aside from an influence 
which it might have on a student's 
choice of college, it "might cause 
us to revaluate Bowdoin College 
and the relationship of fraternities 
to the College." 

Mentioning that Bowdoin was 
not listed among the 50 top in- 
stitutions listed, the President sam 
that Bowdoin could not take any 
refuge in a rationalization that it 
was an exception to the trend 
pointed out by study. 

President Coles raised the ques- 
tion as whether "fraternities con- 
stitute influences hostile to in- 
tellectual effort?" In any case, he 
pointed out that in the most re- 
cent marking period "some houses 
had a disproportionately large 
number of their members who are 
on major warning."

Spring is here. The signs are 
clearly written over every college 
campus in New England. Amherst, 
Williams, Trinity, and Yale are 
having their first big round of 
spring houseparties this w e ekend. 
A Brown group hired a 500 pas- 
senger boat last weekend to follow 
the yacht races. And even DRAY

his biology books to sponsor a

also a rendezvous for 50 Yales who 
stationed themselves at the Col- 
lege Inn and invited the girls to 
take their choice. Convertibles, 
with tops down, the occasional op- 
timists in cord jackets, girls adding 
color to tans started on their spring 
vacations, and magnolias in bloom 
left no room for doubt that it was 
spring. And here on campus Mon- 
day morning Bowdoin men were

In spite of the season many un- 
dergraduates were keeping an eye 

on classes and the approaching 
final examination period. 

A Wesleyan group similar to our 
Student Curriculum Committee has 
approached the administration 
with a request for longer finals. 
They asked the Dean: "If the ma- 
jor functions of exams are to test 
the students' general understand- 
ing of the subject as a whole and 
his retention of certain valuable 
data, why should the students' 
demonstration of either be limited 
by time?" The Dean, speaking for 
the administration, has promised 
to go over the problem carefully. 

And a New York college may ex- 
periment with a "dead week" to 
relieve exam pressure. In this case 
the college will not schedule any 
activities during the seven days 
before its final examination period.

National collegiate opinion, 

much of it unfavorable, is current- 
ly being expressed about the sus- 
pension from the national organiza- 
tion of the Williams chapter of Phi 
Delta Theta. This chapter pledged 
a student of Jewish faith which is 
prohibited by the fraternity con- 
stitution. When reminded of the 
restrictive clause by its National 
Office, the Williams Phi Delts re- 
plied that they considered the dis- 
criminatory clause "incompatible 
with the principles of friendship 
and ethics as espoused in the bonds 
of Phi Delta Theta." The National 
Office then invoked an interim sus- 
pension until 1954. The case will 
then be reviewed at the frater- 
nity's annual convention. 

A poll of the chapter's alumni 
revealed that approximately 75' [ 
of them were in favor of 1 he pledg- 
ing. The Williams chapter is the 
third one to revolt against the re- 
strictive clause. Phi Delt chapters 
at Hardwick and Middlebury have 
also been separated from the or- 
ganization for similarly violating 
the membership restriction.

By Robert If. Hunt *M, ORIENT Sports Editor 

It is practically every kid's drearn at some stage of his life to be- 
come a major league ballplayer. Each year thousands of boys are 
signed by scouts all over the country off the sandlots, from the high 
school teams, from the American Legion leagues, and even out of the 
softball leagues. But the fellow who never quite seems to make it is 
the college ballplayer. Of course you can point out the exceptions such 
as Frankie Frisch, the Fordham Flash, but players of this caliber one 
can probably count on the fingers of one hand*. The Pittsburgh Pirates 
of today with their emphasis on youth have signed several ballplayers 
Dff the campus to name a few Dick Groat, ex-Duke basketball great 
now in the army who last year was one of the better college boys in 
I the majors last year, .Vic Janowicz, Ohio State's great football star, 
and the O'Brien brothers, Washington's basketball twins. The Red 
Sox, of course have Harry Agganis, the Golden Greek from Boston 
who paul Brown owner of the Cleveland Browns professional football 
team had hoped would eventually replace aging Otto Graham in the 
quarterback slot for his club. These players and the other A.B. boys 
who sign with a major league team for the customary bonus have the 
cards stacked against them from the start. 

In the first place when a fellow graduates from college he is at 
least 22 years old or thereabouts. The kid who is signed" when he 
graduates from high school at 18 has had four years of experience in 
organized ball. The campus great has seen four years of mediocre 
pitching and in a lot of cases has had inadequate coaching. This is 
not necessarily the fault of the coach who may have had no real ex- 
perience coaching pitchers having been an outfielder or vice versa.' 
(This is in no way a criticism of coaching at Bowdoin, the record of 
the team speaks for itself.) At the age of 22 then Jhe college grad 
can expect to be at least two years anyway in the minors. In a lot 
of cases when a bonus is involved a major league team is .forced' to 
keep a ballplayer on the team for a certain period of time as in the 
case of Billy Consolo of the Red Sox. Consolo is not a college grad, 
but because he was given a bonus by the Sox when he signed he has 
to stay with them this year. I believe this is also the case with Vic 
Janowicz and the O'Brien boys. at Pittsburgh. None of the players 
mentioned above play regularly and hence have to ride the bench all 
year being limited to occasional pinch hitting and running roles. -In 
quite a few cases this does more harm than good for it keeps good 
prospects from playing regularly and hinders their improving as they 
play regularly for a team of a lower classification. 

Let's say then that by the time the college grad makes the big 
time he is 25 or pushing 26. When a ballplayer breaks into the majors 
at this age he can almost consider himself and old man in baseball 
circles. Anyone in his thirties is old in the majors. Point out a ball- 
player like Jackie Jensen and the whole argument aginst the college 
boy is shot full of holes, but how many ballplayers have played in the 
Rose Bowl and Yankee Stadium. 

For the fancier of facts who might be wondering if Boston's Yo- 
Yo Kid, Tommy Collins set a new record for being on his back during 
a fight (10 times in four rounds), the answer is a definite no. The 
greatest canvas back of all time was a fellow named Joe Jeanette. 
In a fight with Sam McVey in Paris, France, April 17, 1907 Mr. Jean- 
ette hit the deck 27 times. Jeanette was not alone that night as he 
floored McVey 11 times. Who Avon? Well McVey finally quit in 
disgust in the 49th round. 

The University of New Hampshire is sponsoring a sports forum 
with a panel discussion on a topic of national interest. Oh the panel 
will be Gil Dodds, Lou Little, Swede Nelson, Andrea Meade Lawrence, 
and others. Here is something the White Key, Student Union, or 
some organization should look into to stimulate interest in sports 
here on campus. It seems we have more than enough lecturers visit- 
ing the school talking about "the pertinent topics of the day."

Baseball Team Beats Williams, MIT, 
Amherst, On Successful Road Trip 

Bowdoin's baseball spring tour 
proved to be one of the most suc- 
cessful in recent years when the 
team took three out of four eon- 
tests during the trip. 

Only Harvard was able to stop 
Danny MacFayden's nine who de- 
eated Williams, Amherst, and 
MIT in turn. 

The opening game on the trip at 
Cambridge saw Bowdoin fall 6-2. 
Then came victories over Williams 
13-2 and Amherst 7-1. Anthony 
scattered six hits to win the Wil- 
liams game, while Paul Clifford 
pitched a five-hitter against the 
Lord Jeffs. 

MIT Win 

Bowdoin scored three runs in the 

14th inning against Massachusetts 

Institute of Technology Saturday 

for a 6 to 3 win, over the Engi- 

j neers. 

Bowdoin's Wally Bartlett walk- 
ed, moved up on another walk and 
scored when second baseman Dick 
Rush made a two-base error on 
Fred Flemming's ground ball. The 
Polar Bears added two more runs 
before. Ted Slosek — who pitched 
all the way for the losers — re- 
tired the side. 

Right-hander Lou Audet had a 
three to one Jaad going into the 
last of the ninth, but Ben Slack's 
two-run single tied the score. 
Audet gave up only three runs 
while toiling for 11 innings. Then 
he tired and was relieved by Jim 
Hebert, who pitched hitless ball 
the rest of the way. 

Errors, Walks Fatal 

Harvard capitalized on walks 
and defensive lapses to win its first 
game in four starts over the Polar 
Bears at Soldiers Field Wednes- 

The Crimson picked up three 
runs on three walks, two errors, 
and hit batsman, and added two 
more in the second on an error, a 

dropped third strike, two passed 
balls and Dick Clasby's single. 

Pitcher Andy Ward drove in the 
sixth Harvard run when he singled 
in the fifth to drive in Tom Wise, 
who had walked and stolen second. 

First baseman Jack Gosgrove 
accounted for both Bowdoin runs 
when he homered in the first inn- 
ing and scored behind Wally Bart-

Bowdoin JV Golfers 
Sweep Deering 6-0 

One sided matches predominated 
as the Bowdoin junior varsity 
swept its golf matches with Deer- 
ing High School 6-0. There were 
no outstanding scores even though 
the closest match ended on the 
lath hole. 

The Summary: 

Dave Bird (B) defeated Jerrv Davis (D) 6- 
5: Ty Tyler (B) defeated Dick Low (I)) 7- 
6 ; best ball Bowdoin 8-7. 
Jack'Dabne'y (B) defeated Harold Hutchin-

Donald Barnes <D) 5-4; best ball Bowdoin

I tory over the AD's to win the 
playoffs. They had bowed to the 
heavily favored Alpha Delts 32-20 
during the regular season. 

The offensive line-up of the Kap- 
pa Sigs featured a combination of 
freshmen and seniors. Ted Ken- 
ney, Rollie Janelle, and John Krei- 
der, later to be members of the 
starting five on the freshman bas- 
ketball team, were all important 
in the victory with Kreider and 
Janelle scoring vital touchdowns 
in the playoffs. Seniors Doc Gerry - , 
Jim Connellan, and Ray Little 
filled the other three starting posi- 
tions with Gerry doing most of the 
passing and directing the team. 
Strangely enough. Kreider was the 
only player picked on the all-fra- 


ternity team, but this fact serves 
to emphasize the real teamwork 
which the Harpswell Street boys

ing fact to observe is that in both

have won the title oyer the regular 
season only to have the Kappa Sig- 
mas win the playoffs to take the 
points. This year's team, led by

The Bowdoin JV's or, more cor- 
rectly, the Bowdoin freshmen, took 
a 4-3 decision from Deering High 
School of Portland last Tuesday 
afternoon, April 21, behind the 
seven inning shut out pitching of 
Al Marshall. 

In the first two innings, the 
freshmen got the lead-off man 
aboard via singles but were unable 
to score. Al Murray opened the 
bottom of the third with a boom- 
ing single to right center and scor- 
ed on a wild pitch shortly there- 

Both teams were unable to push 
another run across until the last 
of the seventh when Bowdoin 
tallied three times off Lopez, 
Deering's third pitcher. Gelinas 
batted for Marshall and grounded 
out, but John Kreider reached on 
the shortstop's error and stole 
second. Ronnie Harris followed 
with a walk, and, after Libby had 
grounded out to third, George 
Heselton also was passed to load 
the bases. Pete Rigby dropped a 
Texas League single to left and 
two runs scored. Heselton then

crossed the plate on a passed ball 
for the third run. 

Marshall Impressive 
Lee Dyer then came on to pitch 
for Bowdoin relieving Al Marshall 
who had turned in an outstanding 
performance. Marshall gave up on 
runs and just five hits in the seven 
innings he worked. Even more im- 
pressive was the fact that he had 
not given up a single base on balls 
in those seven innings and had 
been ahead of most of the batters. 

The Portlanders seemed to/take 
a fancy to Dyer's fast ball and put 
together two hits and an error 
for a single run in the eighth. They 
added two more in the ninth on 
three hits and a wild pitch. The 
tying run was on first when Dyer 
struck out pinch-hitter White to 
end the game.

Behind The Ivy Curtain 

By E. Ward GUmaa *53 

We were busy working over our 
usual political theme, when we 
were struck by a sudden startling 
thought. Why don't we have house- 
mothers? And why haven't we had 
them sooner ? Why has the admin- 
istration neglected this vital prob- 
lem so long? Huh? 

Reliable sources have it that a 
spot check of any fraternity house 
will turn up more dust per spot 
than an Electrolux salesman could 
In a house equipped with a Hoover. 
Symptoms of general slovenliness, 
are rife. It is time for a general 
house cleaning. And housemothers 
could do it. 

Not that the housemothers 
would have to do the actual clean- 
ing, but the dis- 
criminating eye 
jof a good house- 
Jmother is! able to 
■detect tho*e little 
Humps under the 
] rugs where the 
{dust has been 
jh i d d e n, and 
]her" reproachful 
glance would 
doubtless incite a good, thorough, 
hard and true cleanup. 

But let us not dwell on dirt for 
too long a time. The housemother 
system has so many other favor- 
able features that they do not re- 
quire enumeration here, but, as. 
usual, in the greater interests of 
the general public, we will go into 
a few of the legion. 

One of the main objections to 
sending impressionable, personable 
lads to college is the much over- 
emphasized problem of under- 
graduate drinking. Now, it is com- 
mon knowledge that many of the 
boys turn to the foolish expedient 
of alcohol when they are confront- 
ed with seemingly insurmountable 
problems. Many of these problems 
appear insoluble because the boys 
lack mature advice. A house- 
mother could easily supply the 
necessary advice, and save many 
from the ravages of drink in times 
of stress. * 

Then there are the little every 
day annoyances that plague the 
average undergraduate: holes in 
socks, missing buttons, bow ties 
and such trivia. A housemother, 
well grounded in the art of mend- 
ing would be of immeasurable 
value. Then there is always the 
possibility of having one or more 
of the housemothers, in addition 
to their regular duties, teaching a 
course in elementary home eco- 
nomics, which would be a great 
boon to the well rounded liberal 
arts curriculum. 

* * * * 

The scene is any typical frater- 
nity house in a typical liberal arts 
college. The housemother, Mother 
Grogan, a kindly elderly lady is 
sitting at her knitting in her room. 
There is a knock on the door, and 

it opens revealing Charlie Bur- 
gess, a typical young liberal arts 
student who, from all appearances, 
has something bothering his little 
mind. ' 

Bowdoin Jazz Band 
Engaged For Summer 

[Continued from Page 1] 
Those now comprising the Polar 
Bear Five are Ward Kennedy, 
trombone; Brace Young, clarinet; 
Bert Li pas. piano; Wally Harper, 
cornet; and Louis Benoit, drums. 
A repertoire consisting of nearly 
one hundred tunes is now affording 
the Polar Bear Five a variety of 
songs. Although most of the num- 
bers played at jazz concerts are the 
more popular ones, "The Saints," 
•Five Foot Two," and "Ain't She 
Sweet?" as examples, a large vari- 
ety of songs is needed for the job 
this summer. 

Begin Working June 26 
The Polar Bear Five will be 
playing at John Shechans Restau- 
rant in Falmouth, Mass. They be- 
gin work on the weekend of June 
26 and will continue during the full 
season until after Labor Day. The 
hours are from six to one each 
night with afternoon jam sessions 
on Saturday and Sunday. 

A folder sent out to all the fra- 
ternities and dormitories of most 
of the New England colleges has 
produced several requests for en- 
gagements. At Pine Manor the 
Polar Bear Five played two differ- 
ent jam sessions the weekend be- 
fore vacation. An engagement at 
Williams College for May 2, and 
one at Bradford May 9 have also 
been obtained. The Holland Steam- 
ship Line of New York offered the 
Polar Bear Five a job playing on a 
ship to Europe and back, but com- 
mitments for the summer made 
this impossible. 

Charlie: May I come in, Mother 

Mother Grogan: Why certainly, 
Charlie. Do sit down. Just put the 
knitting bag anywhere. You look 
worried, Charlie. Is there some- 
thing bothering you, 

Charlie: Yes, I just sat on a 
crochet hook. 

Mother Grogan: Why, I've been 
looking for that all day long. My 
heavens, I'm getting frightfully 
nearsighted. (She dons a pair of 
bifocals.) Do you want me to sew 
on those buttons for you? 

Charlie: Well, yes I would, but 
that isn't the real reason I came 

Mother Grogan (sewing busily) : 
What is the matter? 

Charlie (fidgeting a bit in his 
em harassment) : Er . . . well, 
Mother Grogan, I . . . uh . . . 

Mother Grogan: Yes? 

Charlie: Well, it's . . . it's Jane. 
I mean she . . . well, I didn't mean 
to . . . well, actually I shouldn't 
have, but she drove me to it. 

Mother Grogan: To what, 
Charlie ? 

Charlie: Well, you know that 
big prom is coming up next week- 
end, and I wanted to ask Jane up, 
but she said that she didn't think 
she could come . . . well, she didn't 
actually say that, but I thought 
she did, so I invited Carol instead, 
and she found out. and got awfully 
mad and sent back my dog collar, 
and I was so mad that I went out 
and had a beer. And now I don't 
know what to do. 

Mother Grogan: Now Charlie, 
I .wouldn't worry. You know that 
if Jane really loves you, why she'll 
get over it, and take your dog 
collar back. And there will be more 
proms. .Now you just make up your 
mind to have a good time with 

Charlie: But Carol can't come 
either, so I won't be able to have 
a date at all. 

Mother Grogan: Then why don't 
you make up with Jane? It always 
does a person good to swallow his 
pride now and then, and admit 
that he's made a mistake. 

Charlie (brightening): Why, 
Mother Grogan, I never thought of 
that. I don't know how I can 
thank you. 

Mother Grogan: Tush, don't 
bother about thanking me. I like 
to think of all you boys as my own, 
and try to help out where I can. 
Now take your shirt and run 
along so's I can finish my knitting.

We would like to add a word 
of warning to our gentle readers in 
view of certain events that have 
taken place since our last column 
appeared. We hope that no one will 
run off half-cocked this week and 
get a housemother without first 
getting permission from the ad-

Credit is obtained only at the ex- 
travagant rate of 50 per-cent. He 
said that the United States tried 
to improve the situation by buying 
church land but in general not 
much progress has been made. The 
area in central Luzon where the 
farmers are most oppressed is the 
stronghold of the Huk or local 
communist movement. 

Professor Storer noted that in- 
dustry is more attractive to the 
average Philippino' |han is agricul- 
ture. However, he feels that indus- 
trialization of the islands is "quite 
impossible and impractical." The 
government has encouraged indus- 
try "but not always wisely," he 

He concluded his remarks by 
emphasizing the importance of 
close U.S. - Philippino relations 
which exist at the present time. 
He stated that as long as such re- 
lations continue, the chances for 
improved conditions in the islands 
will be better.

proved that this need not be the 

Student Support Essential 
) The greatest obstacle could be 
in the apathy of the students. So 
far, the Committee has received 
support from the student body, and 
it is hoped that it will deserve 
that support in the future. Only 
with the support of the students, 
in participation in the work of the 
Committee, cooperation in its in- 
vestigations and interest in its ac- 
tivities, can the Committee* carry 
out its assigned function of repre- 
senting the students. 

As long as the above are avoid' 
ed, then the next obstacle, that of 
faculty and administration opposi- 
tion will be unwarranted, and 
surely, not forthcoming. 

This year, the matters which the 
Committee has selected to discuss 
were those chosen by the Commit- 
tee from suggestions transmitted 
to it throuph the fraternity repre- 
sentatives. Of course, not all these 
suggestions could be followed up, 
and many more will certainly be 
forthcoming when the Committee 
seeks new subjects for discussion. 
Students Wish To Be Heard 

There are, for instance, many 
students who indicated on one of 
the questionaires that they would 
like to speak before the Commit- 
tee. The Committee regrets that 
it did not have the chance to hear 
these men, but it is hoped that 
such a procedure may be adopted 
next year when new suggestions 
are sought. 

The Committee is asking each 
of the Fraternities and the In- 
dependents to elect their repre- 
sentative to the Committee at 
least two weeks before final ex- 
aminations in order that the new 
and the old Committee may meet 
together. It is hoped that in this 
way the Committee may have a 
continuity between the years 
which will make its work more 
effective during the next school 

The Committee has found that 
there is much useful work to be 
done, useful to every part of the 
College, and if the interest and 
support of the students, faculty 
and administration is maintained, 
the Student Curriculum Commit- 
tee can become a valuable per- 
manent member of the student 
groups on the Bowdoin Campus.

Faculty Receptions 

Theta Delta Chi and Zeta Psi 
are holding faculty receptions this 
week on Tuesday and Thursday 
nights respectively. 

The T.D.'s recently extended in- 
vitations, for their fourth annual 
reception to the whole faculty. In 
the past they have planned various 
forms of entertainment, and last 
night slides of the Arctic and of 
Europe were shown by Thomas R. 
Pickering '53 and Raymond M. 
Biggs '53 respectively. Punch was 
served for refreshment. 

The Zete's have invited the 
presidents of the various fraterni- 
ties and of the Independents, other 
guests, and members of the faculty 
to attend their reception. Approxi- 
mately 300 attended their party 
two years ago and about the same 
number is expected tomorrow 
night. A buffet supper is planned 
and the Zete quartet will sing. 

Savings Plan Suggested 
For Bowdoin Students 

The recently appointed repre- 
sentative of the Penn Mutual Life 
Insurance Company for this area, 
Mr. Ludlow Elliman, has announc- 
ed an organized savings plan with 
"some compulsion behind it". 

Mr. Elliman plans to assist Bow- 
doin men in formulating sound 
financial programs for the future, 
and he hopes to be of service, in the 
fields of Life Insurance and Annui- 

A native of New York City, Mr. 
Elliman moved with his family to 
Maine six years ago. He has been 
a member of the Naval Air Re- 
serve for 11 years arid is an honor 
graduate of Princeton where he 
was Service Manager for the 
"Daily Princetonian" and a partici- 
pant in rowing and hockey. 

An associate of the Frederick L. 
Parkhurst Agency of Penn Mutual, 
Mr. Elliman has an office in Dam- 
ariscotta. He plans to make fre- 
quent trips to Brunswick and the 
Bowdoin campus.

Interf raternity Crown

The Dekes were expected to take 
the playoffs but were sidelined in 
the semi-finals by a surprising Sig- 
ma Nu team while the Kappa Sigs 
were crushing the ARU's as ex- 
pected, '72-50. Cosgrove with 22 
points, Connellan with 20, and La- 
gueux with ten, were the top scor- 
ers for the Red and Green. 

The finals proved much closer 
and the Sigma Nus held a slight 
lead at halftime. It wasn't until 
near the close of the third period 
that Kappa Sigma finally started 
to hit, and from then on they never 
relinquished the lead. The final

Ray Greenwood and Roland Ware

The volleyball team, made up of 
Lagueux, Connellan, Gulezian, Cos-

easy winners in the volleyball play-

Examining Committee 
Debates Conditions, 
Faculty Appointments 

The College's Educational Policy 
Committee met last Wednesday to 
discuss matters of curriculum and 
general educational policy, and the 
Examining Committee met on 
Thursday, both committees to sub- 
mit their reports to the Governing 
Boards soon. 

The Examining Committee, 
which meets once a year, discussed 
faculty appointments for next year 
and conferred with the Dean on the 
moral condition of the College. At 
a closed meeting with the Student 
Council, other College matters were 
freely discussed. The Committee 
also conferred with Douglas A. 
Chalmers '54, founder of the new 
Student Curriculum Committee 
and head of the organization. 

The Examining Committee is 
composed of Messrs. Melvin T. 
Copeland, John Halford, Burpee, 
Clement F. Robinson, Harry L. 
Palmer, Boyd W. Bartlett and Leon 
V. Walker. Edward F. Abbot, who 
died recently, is replaced on the

Marine Corps To Offer 
Officer Training Course 
Divided Into 2 Divisions 

The Marine Corps now offers a 
program comparable to those offer- 
ed by the Army and Navy. 

The program is divided into two 
divisions, the Platoon Leader's Pro- 
gram and the Officers' Candidate 
Program In the Platoon Leaders' 
Program the candidate attends 
two summer camps held at Quan- 
tico, Virginia. The first he attends 
before the junior year and the sec- 
ond in the vacation period preced- 
ing the senior year. The first train- 
ing period purpose is to familiarize 
the candidate with the organiza- 
tion of the Marine Corps and what 
the program has to offer him. It 
also eliminates all candidates not 
meeting the Corps qualifications for 
leadership. The second period is 
spent in more advanced training. 

After receiving his A.B. degree 
the candidate receives five months 
of schooling and then serves nine- 
teen months on active duty, having 
been commissioed as a officer. 

The six year period following 
the term of active duty is spent in 
the inactive reserves. 

The Officers' Candidate Program 
is like the Platoon Leaders' except 
that the two six week training 
periods of the Platoon Leader 
Program are given after the can- 
didate has received his degree. 

The physical qualifications for 
the program are the same as those 
required by the Naval Academy for 
entrance as midshipmen. The men- 
tal qualifications are that the can- 
didate be a holder of an A.B. or 
M.S. degree, and that he must 
meet the required score on an apti- 
tude test. He must also present 
three letters of recommendation 
and the recommendation of the 
Dean of the school from which he 
received his degree.

Speech, Thought Freedom 
In Great Peril - Kirkland 

Freedom of speech and freedom of thought, although in peril, can 
be regained if the American teacher is willing to fight for them, so 
said Professor Edward C. Kirkland, Monday night, in Memorial Hall 
to an audience of over 600 people gathered to hear him speak on 
Academic Freedom in Peril. 

Mr. Kirkland first assured all that he was not speaking for any 
organization, but was speaking as an individual. Academic freedom is 
a necessity for a professor, he asserted, and equally as important for 
the student. A student must have faith in the integrity of the professor 
and such integrity can only be by allowing the professor to think and 
speak freely. 

Cause Of Peril I 1 

After declaring that the pre- | |U IIC : p fl..k p rocmi + c 
sence of Communist teachers in I IflUML \jIWJ IICMMIlO 

schools is the chief cause of the C^npari NoY* TllACffav

frailities in the reasons for expell- | n Ifiminrial Hall 
ing all Communists from the ! ' I IWCHIUI Idl Ildll 

teaching world. He felt that this 
was an infringement on the in- 
dependence of the educator and 
compared the rights of free educa- 
tion to that of the rights of a free 
judiciary as invisioned by Alex- 
ander Hamilton. 

To him the Senate and House 
investigating committees on com- 
munism in the schools "are no in- 
vestigations but trials of those in- 
dividuals the committee and others 
esteem bad." The on|y criterion for 
finding a teacher wrong is his past 
and present political views, not 
how he acts as an individual. Mr. 
Kirkland agreed that those teach- 
ers who were biased and in- 
competent should not teach, but 
they should not be expelled be- 
cause of their beliefs. Through 
these investigators misuse of the 
Smith Act and the 5th Amend- 
ment, a crime has been made out 
of what isn't a crime. 

Undsr Attack 

Professor Kirkland execrated 
those legislators and college ad- 
ministrators for their acceptance 
and' actual participation in restric- 
tions placed on teachers for their 
thoughts. Jenner, Velde, McCarthy, 
Allen, Jones, and Sproul were 
especially under his attack. They 
have attempted to hamstring the 
academic world by loyalty oaths 
and investigating committees. 

Going beyond the reals of aca- 
demic freedom, Kirkland saw the 
individual as being limited greatly 
in his personal rights by the in- 
creasing emphasis on the federal 
government. Some are even begin- 
ning to think that the government 
is infallible. He returned to his

Major Exams Open This Monday; 
Senior Class Excuses Start Today 

Major examinations for those 
students planning to graduate this 
June will be held the week of 
May 11 this year. 

Men taking these exams accord- 
ing to the regulations, revised and 
approved by the Faculty at a meet- 
ing last month, will be excused 
from classes from Wednesday, May 
6 until such time as they shall 
have completed the exams. 

The system of major examina- 
tions at Bowdom was disrupted 
by the war, not being resumed 
until last year. The regulations 
are as follows:

major department, with a grade 
of "C" or better in at least four 
of those offered for the major 
examination or those used to 
satisfy the course requirements 
of a science department; 

2. Complete his minor, as ap- 
proved by the major depart- 

3. Pass a comprehensive writ- 

ten examination, and, wherever 
such combination is desired by 
the department, an oral exami- 
nation as well. A science de- 
partment may at its discretion 
substitute two extra courses not 
to count for the degree for the 
comprehensive examination. The 
courses used for this purpose 
and the grade to be obtained in 
them are set by the department 

4. Attend group, sectional, or 
individual tutorial conferences 
in which his major department 
shall afford him reasonable 
preparation for the comprehen- 
sive examination. 
II. The Major with Honors. A 
student with honor grades in his 
major courses may, during his 
junior year, become a candidate 
for a major with honors upon ap- 
plication to his major department. 
At its descretion, a department 
may also accept students with low- 
er grades as candidates for the 
major with honors. Award of 
honors shall be on the basis of: 
1. Honor grades in sue major

were two trips, both of which de- 
bated the topic of a Compulsory 
Fair Employment Practices Act. 

Debating at Howard, Princeton, 
the University of Pennsylvania, Le- 
high, and Lafayette, Bowdoin came 
out even in the judged contests.

Department Of English 
Curriculum Reorganized 
By Changes In Faculty 

The Sabbatical leave of Pierce 
Professor of English, Robert P. T. 
Coffin and the return of Assistant 
Professor Lawrence N. Barrett 
will necessitate some changes in 
the English department curri- 

English 15, 16 and English 9, 10 
will be presented by the instructor 
substituting for Professor Coffin. 
English 15, 16 is a study of English 
literature, excluding drama, from 
the end of the Elizabethan period, 
through the time of Dryden con- 
centrating on Jonson, Bacon, 
Donne, Herrick, Mirton, Browne 
and Dryden, the metaphysical 
poets. English 9, 10 covers the field 
of English literature as a whole 
from 700 to 1900. Particular 
emphasis is put upon a few repre- 
sentative authors and works and 
critical essays on outside reading 
are assigned. 

The instructor substituting for 
Professor Coffin will also have one 
section of English 1, 2. 

English 7, 8, a course in English 
Composition, will be given by As- 
sistant Professor Barrett in the 
coming academic year. The first 
semester is composed of written 
work on assigned subjects with at- 
tention focused on the disciplines 
of composition and methods of ex- 

The second semester of the 
course treats the more imaginative 
aspects of composition with atten- 
tion to special forms and individual 

History Course Change 
Caused By Sabbatical 
Leave Of Kirkland 

Two semester courses, one on 
American Colonial History and the 
second on the American West, will 
replace History 17, 18 for next 
year due to the Sabbatical leave 
of Professor Edward C. Kirkland. 

History 22 will be given during 
the fall semester and will cover 
the period of American history 
from 1492 to 1783. Although listed 
in the catalog, it has not been 
offered for several years. History 
21, an analysis of the history ©f the 
American West, will be given dur- 
ing the spring semester.

Coles Urges Morally ,J 
Suitable Actions In 
Sunday Chapel Speech 

"Opportunity knocks many, 
many times", but it "carries with 
it the implication of action on one's 
own part," — action "based on 
some moral code," declared Presi- 
dent James S. Coles in his speech 
in Chapel, Sunday. 

Emphasizing the need for moral- 
ly suitable actions, he quoted Jesus' 
statement that "no man can serve 
two masters", and added that man 
will always do good when guided 
by God. 

He further stated that one sound 
justification for education is its 
role as a provider of the "ability to 
recognize . . . and even create op- 
portunities, and ... to act on the 
responsibilities inherent in any op- 

As one who had recognized and 
acted upon an opportunity in a 
sacrificial manner, President Coles 
cited Augustus Freedom Moulton, 
who was graduated from Bowdoin 
eighty years ago. He pointed out 
that we are still enjoying the bene- 
fits of that acting on an opportun- 

Referring to communal life, he 
said that opportunities for partici- 
pation are numerous, but that ac- 
tions must be made for the good of 
the community as a whole, and not 
for one's own interest. President 
Coles concluded his speech with 
the reminder that although the re- 
sults of action upon an opportunity 
may not be felt in a lifetime, they 
may be very much appreciated in 
another generation.

Student Council To Prepare 
Hazing Policy Statement 

A decision by the Student Council to draw up a statement estab- 
lishing a polity on the hazing program at Bowdoin was made at their 
weekly meeting, Monday, following a talk on the problem by Dean 
Nathaniel C. Kendrick. 

The Dean, who discussed various aspects of the hazing and initia- 
tion programs at Bowdoin, stated thatjihis main interest was in clear- 
ing the initiation policy of any justifiable criticism. He said that de- 
layed initiation would be desirable if it would be accompanied by a 
change in hazing, but he again stated that he was primarily interested 
in a better type of hazing. 

Dorr, Mitchell, Wyatt,

Young Bandleader 

Only 28, Lawrence has made 
rapid strides with his orchestra 
since 1946. In that year he played 
in the Cafe Rouge of the Statler 
Hotel in New York without any 
previous "big name" bookings. He 
played on "We The People" and 
the "Chesterfield Supper Club," 
before going to Frank Dailey's 
Meadowbrook outside of New York 
City in New Jersey. 

Lawrence has played at about 
300 educational institutions, and 
he has been invited back to many 
of these schools. His yearly 
schedule is long, 100,000 miles a 
year being his average. 

A graduate of the University of 
Pennsylvania, he had his own 
orchestra in his high school days. 
His musical education had started 
when he was two, and at four he 
made his debut as a conductor.

issue of delayed initiation through 
the publication of an edict. He said 
that this was up to the students 
and the fraternities themselves. 

Pointing out that the present 
hazing and initiation policy at 
Bowdoin upsets both the time 
schedule and the states of mind, 
the Dean said that criticism, al- 
though not always justifiable, was 
almost continuous. He also men- 
tioned that a hazing program 
which was not defensible would be 
subject to an. even greater criti- 
cism in case of a serious accident. 

Dean Kendrick said that if Bow- 
doin claims to be a good college, 
it can't call off academic work for 
a period of time just because of 
quests or a hell week. He mention- 
ed that the problem is increased 
since men come from different 
backgrounds with different pre- 
paration in high school or prepara- 
tory school. He said that some 
people put it this way: "You take 
him in and then you make it hard 
for him to survive." 

Following the Dean's talk, the 
Council continued the meeting on 
a discussion basis. A majority of 
the group continued to oppose any 
general or mandatory change in j 
the date of initiation, although it) 
was perfectly willing for any in- 
dividual fraternity to make the 
change on its own. The representa- 
tive of Chi Psi reported that his 
house had already changed the 
date of its initiation to after the 
beginning of the second semester 
next year. 

The discussion turned to the 
problem of the type of hazing, and, 
although the difficulties in describ- 
ing the purposes of hazing were 
brought out, it was decided to 
draw up a Student Council state- 
ment of policy on this point. The 
text of a suggested policy will be 
submitted to the Council at their 
next meeting, May 18, for their ap- 
proval or rejection. 

In other business, the Council 
gave the ATO representative, Rob- 
ert N. Thurston '54, a vote of con- 
j fidence after he had reported 
j trouble with the College over 
i some bed sheets issued to his house 
for the Interscholastic Track

Ladies and gentlemen, let me 
begin with, a personal note of dis- 
claimer. In speaking tonight on 
"Academic Freedom in Peril", I 
speak as an individual. I do not 
represent the American Associa- 
tion of University Professors of 
which I am a very "ex" ex-presi- 
dent, nor do I speak for the Bow- 
doin Chapter. I do not represent 
Bowdoin College or the faculty of 
Bowdoin College. I do not repre- 
sent the Communist Party- or any 
communist front organization — 
as far as I know. I say "as far 
far as, I know" for there may be 
some informer or turncoat in the 
wings who at a critical moment 
will remember that I was well 
known among members of the 
"Party" under the assumed name 
of "Mac"; that my registration as 
a Republican in the State of Maine 
is "Aesopian laneuage"; and that I 
once tried to deliver a letter to 
Alger Hiss when he was writing 
for the Daily Worker. 
an individual I will speak with 
complete candor. I wish to assure 
the undergraduates among my 
hearers and perhaps the new- 
comers to the faculty that no hint 
has ever suggested nor imperative 
demanded that I tune my words 
and thoughts to the susceptibilities 
of hearers or readers. The freedom 
of its teachers is one of the many 
glories of this institution. 

If we are to talk about academic 
freedom in peril, we must have 
some notion of what is menaced. 
Let us face it without apology, 
academic freedom concerns pro- 
fessors. It is not a professional 
privilege; it is a prerequisite for 
the work of professors if that work 
is to have effectiveneess or mean- 
ing. The disinterested search for 
actuality is impossible if restric- 
tions fetter those engaged in the 
task and directives as to what is 
good or bad control their findings. 
Academic freedom is important for 
students. Without its existence on 
campus the students can have no 
confidence that what they are lis- 
tening to or learning represents 
the honest opinion of their profes- 
sors. In an institution that is not 
free, the undergraduates crowding 
out of the classroom door may 
well mutter, "He doesn't believe 
that stuff," or "He was told to say 
that." The loss of respect for the 


integrity of the teacher rightly 
means that what it taught, no mat- 
ter how acceptable to popular 
opinion or to pressure groups, is 
both unimportant and ignoble. 
There is a third aspect to academic 
freedom. The freedom and in- 
dependence of teachers, a demo- 
cratic society has hitherto believed, 
was of value to society. The most 
succinct statement of the reasons 
for this case was advanced over a 
century and a half -ago when a wise 
conservative, Alexander Hamilton, 
was justifying in the Federalist 
the provisions of the Constitution 
— life tenure and dismissal only 
for cause — assuring • the in- 
dependence of the Federal judi- 
ciary. Only such a tenure, wrote 
Hamilton, would give the judges 
the long term necessary to the 
mastery of the laws and the ability 
to resist "the arts of designing 
men" and the "ill-humors" which 
occasionally seize the people them- 
selves. In this quotation it is easy 
and appropriate to substitute 
knowledge for laws and scholars 
for judges. 

At present the chief peril to aca- 
demic freedom arises from the pre- 
sence on college faculties of those 
who are members of the Com- 
munist Party or who have been so, 
and the measures taken to deal 
with such individuals. There are 
those who assert that institutions 
of higher learning should dismiss 
all Communists, and less certainly 
all ex-Communists, from their 
faculties. Present, or perhaps past 
membership, in the Communist 
Party is by and of itself justifica- 
tion for dismissal. Occasionally the 
arguments for this case border on 
the ludicrous. Thus recently Wil- 
liam Jansen, Superintendent of 
Schools, City of New York, an ad- 
vocate of purging Communists who 
usually plays his cards close to 
his vest, justified the dismissal of 
communist teachers on the ground 
they could' not love children. A 
more substantial and cogent argu- 
ment asserts that communist 
teachers belong to a political 
Party which, if a quotation from 
Lenin be the test, follows a policy 
of lie and falsehood. For a period 
of five years President Dickey of 
Dartmouth has been passionately 
emphasizing this moral disqualifi-

Kirkland's Defense Welcome 

"Academic Freedom" is a subject which has assumed an 
increasing importance in American minds during the last few 
months. The large attendance at Professor Edward C. Kirk- 
land s lecture "Academic Freedom.. In Peril" indicates the col- 
lege community's interest in the subject. 

Not long ago, attacks against the nation's colleges and pro- 
fessors filled the press. Only in a few isolated cases did uni- 
versity and college administrative officers meet this challenge 
to their intellectual integrity. Some officials issued very cautious 
statements weakly stating their position in regard to these at- 
tacks. Others remained silent. 

As members of a college community aware of these at- 
tacks upon freedom of thought and investigation in higher edu- 
cation, we hoped for a long time that our professors and admin- 
istrators would defend themselves and students against the 
often unfounded and in some instances untruthful statements 
made by certain government administrators. The general pub- 
lic became particularly concerned^ about the matter when ad- 
ministrators refused to face the question squarely. A positive 
defense of educational institutions has been needed against the 
encroachment of a small minority willing to spread unreasonable 
suspicion and distrust in American society for the purpose of 
advancing their own political careers. 

Bowdoin has every reason to be proud of Professor Kirk- 
land's clear forceful defense of politically free institutions and 
his fearless expression of personal convictions which many of 
us share.

Douglas A. Chalmers '53 
Continues Analysis Of 
'Shift" Generation 

Dear Sir: 

At the risk of adding to an al- 
ready swollen stream of words, 
here is another partial analysis of 
what makes this generation "si- 

The trouble is that there is 
nothing "hiteresting" to talk 
about. We have reached a point 
where ideals have stagnated. For 
instance, there are no political 
ideals, no principles which hold an 
attraction for the student. The old 
ones, though alive, have either 
proven monstrous or have com- 
promised. Either course renders 
them unattractive. 

Socialism, an old drawing card, 
has compromised on most fronts 
in its hoary age, producing "wel- 
fare states" or the English variety. 
The edge has gone off the ideal. 
There Is nothing quite as uninspir- 
ing as a realistic, pragmatic theory 
which changes color with each new 
situation. "Free enterprise" has 
suffered the same fate. 

Communism has become unat- 
tractive for several reasons. It has 
produced a totalitarian state with 
its attendant atrocities, it has be- 
come the enemy of ideals by its 
enforced conformity, and, of 
course, it is unattractive in this 
country because to believe in it is 

McCarthyism, or anti-McCarthy- 
ism, economy and honestry drives, 
and even the "crusade against 
Communism" are all uninspiring 
because they are not ideals, but 
movements to protect, clean up, or 
contain complex social institutions. 
They don't have the force or appeal 
to grasp the imagination. 
. As far as I know, the same situa- 
tion exists in literature, art, reli- 
gion and philosophy. The old ideas 
are being compromised and there 
is a decided lack of new ones. 
There simply isn't a banner to 
carry anymore. 

Given this lack, then, the stu- 
dents have no common interest, no 
common principle either to dis- 
cuss among themselves or to write 
about. There is nothing to which 
they can commit themselves en- 
thusiastically as idealists. This 
lack of a common intellectual goal 
stultifies their thought as a group, 
and, I suspect, dims their enthus- 
iasm for their individual goals. 
They lack the driving force of a 
group interest. 

There is also a force in the op- 
posite direction. The contemporary 
student cannot afford to dismiss 
the traditions, the trite but still 
admirable ideas of Democracy, or 
the moral code which holds the 
society together. They cannot af- 
ford to be libertines or even 
thorough-going cynics. There is the 
fact of the Communist threat. The 
students, with the rest of the "free 
world" have to give at least their 
tacit consent in the cause of self- 

The "Silent generation" could 
repeat what it hears on the radio 
and reads in the papers every day, 
but it isn't worth it. They are 
silent, it seems, because there is 
nothing "interesting" to talk 
about. Douglas A. Chalmers '53

The Rird 

Once upon a time a heron-like 
copper ibis roosted permanently 
atop the Harvard Lampoon build- 
ing. This weird bird has adorned 
the building for 43 years. It has 
become a sacred symbol to the 
staffs of the Lampoon. So perhaps 
it was only r.ntural that the under- 
graduate staff of the Crimson, 
Harvard's daily newspaper, should 
be perpetually scheming to ab- 
duct this bird. In fact no one was 
too surprised when it was an- 
nounced that the ibis was gone. 
The Lampooners immediately 
pointed an accusing finger at their 
rivals on the Crimson. They fol- 
lowed up their accusations by kid- 
napping the Crimson editor. This 
set the scene for the new famous 
Cambridge Truce Talks. An ex- 
change of prisoners was agreed on. 
Once again the Crimson workers 
conived to foil the bird's owners. 
They returned not the ibis but a 
pile of junk for their editor. 

Needless to say the Lampooners 
immediately recaptured the Crim- 
son editor. The Crimson board of 
editors then elected the ibis to fill 
his place by a count of 24-2. As 
far as we know the editor is still 
in captivity. But the actual where- 
abouts if the bird is a matter open 
to conjecture. It was last seen on 
page 71 of the May 4, issue of 
Time magazine. Here, with Stalin's 
picture in the background, a Har- 
vard man was seen presenting the 
ibis to Semen Tsarapkin, second 
ranking member of the Russian 
delegation to the U.N. A telegram 
had explained that "the editors of 
the Harvard Daily newspaper have 
voted to present a large orna- 
mental brid to Ambassador Vishin- 
sky for use on the spire of Mos- 
cow University." Tsarapkin, ac- 
cepting the bird in his superior's 
absence, was puzzled, "Tell me, 
what does it symbolize?" he asked. 
"Oh," replied the Harvardman, 
"it's sort of an American peace 
dove." "Well," said Tsarapkin, "it's 
a very fine gift. Peace be with you 
and yours. Of the hoax the Lam- 
poon staff said: "The Crimson men 
have no immagination. This was 
just addleheaded vandalism." 
Electronic Age 
Not long ago we gave up trying 
to follow a Biology 2 lecture and 
spent our time watching 150 pen- 
cils trying to keep up with a com- 
plicated lecture related to the pre- 
servation of the species. Then it 
occurred to us that what we need- 
ed was a "student reaction meter." 
This is an electronically operated 
device which registers student pro- 
test without interupting the pro- 
fessor. A push button is installed 
at every seat. If a listener is hav- 
ing trouble keeping up with the 
lecturer he pushes the- ■button. A 
meter at the lectern records the 
number of protests. If the profes- 
sor feels that enough people are 
losing their way he goes back and' 
repeats the matter. Already is use 
at the University of Tennessee, the 
meter has provoked the faculty to 
ask, "How long will it take for a 

Anderson '55 

class to get over the novelty of 
the idea and use the system con- 

Don't Worry Williams 

Not long ago two Williams men 
were on campus to make a study 
of our central buying system. As 
you know most of our food is pur- 
chased in large quantities by the 
college and our stewards and chefs 
order their supplies from this com- 
misary. Williams, faced with the 
increasing costs of food, is study- 
ing the advisability of adopting a 
central buying system similiar to 
j ours. The adversaries of the plan 
feel that it would allow the ad- 
ministration to gain too much 
control over the house dining 
clubs. This however hcrt not been 
our experience. We liave never 
heard any complaints of this na- 
ture. Yet the Williams problem 
focused attention on another ques- 
tion which is of immediate interest 
to us. Their situation is all the 
more acute because of their newly 
adopted policy of deferred rushing. 
Under this system the freshmen 
will not eat in the fraternity din- 
ing rooms but at the newly con- 
structed, student union. Thus fra- 
ternity food budgets are going to 
be reduced by over 25%. Last 
week's proposals concerning delay- 
ed initiation did not carry with 
thorn the suggestion that we also 
delay rushing. However, if the 
Williams experience is any criteri- 
on, we feel that Bowdoin would be 
wise to ascertain that is not in- 
cluded as part of the deferred in- 
itiation program. 
1 It Can't Happen Here 

At the University of Toledo, 35 
girls raced through the men's 
dormitory, startling half-dressed 
male students and stealing pairs 
of shorts as they stormed from 
one room to another. 

In England, six girls at Cam- 
bridge Uinversity, who vowed to 
take baths in each of the men's 
dormitories,, have already been 
successful in two of them. In each 
bathroom the intruders left their

'Old Time Religion' 
Responsible For Recent 
Canceled ROTC Drills 

Something r*w has been in- 
troduced at Bowdoin in the .last 
few wiUu — "prayer meetings" to 
beseech rain on Monday after- 

It is coincidental that the ROTC 
unit drills are also scheduled for 
Monday afternoons. 

The group meetings originated 
at the TD House. The results of 
the first meeting were highly suc- 
cessful as the rain came and the 
drill was postponed. Unfortunately 
a sufficiently a large group could 
not be rounded up to stop the 
rainfall and we had a flood which 
did considerable damage through- 
out the state. 

The second meeting was also a 
rousing success. With Charles F. 
Davis '53 leading the singing, and 
his helpers the chants, the follow- 
ing Monday brought an April 
snowstorm which reached some 
proportion before it could be call- 
ed off. Drill was once more post- 

Encouraged by their successful 
endeavors of the previous weeks 
the group, this past weekend, held 
an interfraternity meeting in front 
of the Moulton Union. Oblivious to 
the fact that another success may 
upend the universe, or at least 
cause an earthquake, and with the 
zeal that comes only to one who 
has drilled at Pickard Field, the 
boys carry on their mission. 

Major Exams Open This Monday; 
Senior Class Excuses Start 

Bowdoin men joined a group 
whose costume is hardly akin to 
the usual campus style. From the 
April 17th edition of the Mt. Holy- 
oke News we gathered that two 
weekending polar bears had enroll- 
ed in the Salvation Army in order 
to secure a night's lodging. 

Three more Bowdoin under- 
graduates found their way into the 
columns of a woman's college 
paper. The April 23, issue of the

All the roads 
lead to Kankakee 

Some routes, naturally, are longer than 
others. But if there is less traffic on them, 
they might get you to Kankakee faster. 

The same holds true of your Long 
Distance calls. When circuits are tempo- 
rarily busy on the most direct route for 
your call, a new electronic brain in the 
telephone office automatically selects alter- 
nate routes. They may be hundreds of 
miles longer, but the detour saves you time. 

And die entire operation of selection 
and rerouting is done in a split second! 

The Bell System people who perfected, 
maintain and r perate this electronic 
switching system have one goal: to make 
the best telephone service in the worW 
even better. Would you like to join this 
competent, aggressive team? 

There are many opportunities in the 
Bell System — in engineering, business ad-

Among the new buildings to Be erected here on campus in the 
near future is a theatre and a music building. The one improvement 
that has not been mentioned, at least publicly, and should take prefer- 
ence over most others is a he*v gym or field house or at least a remod- 
eling of the present antiquated relic. The present gym includes one 
full size basketball court and one locker room* which is so snlall that 
two and sometimes 4hree people must use the same locker. The major- 
ity of the lockers are only half sire at that. Down in. the basement 
with the lockers is the college's one and only hand ball court or at least

that is what it is called. To describe the room would be impossible. { ^^ sket ch. made several years ago, shows a projected wing which 
It abounds with radiator pipes and projections of all kinds, the walls ; might at sometime be added to the Sargent Gym. The wing, which 
are completely unpadded, and the room on the whole is too small. 1 would balance the Curtis Swimming Pool, would contain squash courts 

The other two or three rooms down there are mostly used to accom- 
modate visiting teams. To make visiting teams dress in these is a 
disgrace. They are provided with no lockers, no showers, and little 
of anything else. All that is there are wooden tables on which to put 

Because there is room for only one basketball court during the 
winter when most activities are confined inside, the court becomes 
miserably crowded during eal classes. In the afternoon the floor must 
be vacated in order that the freshmen and varsity teams may practice. 
The seating capacity is also limited to a small gathering. Recently 
because of the poor basketball teams at the school there has been 
little call for more space. Should Bowdoin ever come up with a good 
team, even the students in the school could not be accommodated. 

The swimming pool, the most recent addition to the athletic facili- 
ties, suffers also from a lack of seating capacity. This fact is most 
noticeable on a houseparty weekend when few students and their dates 
can see one of Bowdoin's better teams in action. Once again there is 
no locker space for visiting teams in the swimming pool annex. Visi- 
tors must use one of "the rooms." 

The cage on the whole is also small and inadequate. The track 
that circles the outer rim is narrow and the space for field events is 
small. In the discus event the discus quite frequently hits the netting 
at the top of the cage limiting the throws considerably. 

What could be done to remedy the situation ? A definite remodel- 
ing and extension of both the cage and gymnasium would be the answer. 
With the social part of Bowdoin and surrounding areas limited to the 
flicks, visiting lecturers, and other nondescript happenings, the least 
the college could do is improve its facilities here on campus. Is it 
too much to ask for your own locker? 

The basketball court could be enlarged to twice its present size, 
while squash courts, handball courts, boxing equipment, bowling alleys, 
a target range, and many other things could be added. All this does 
not mean an emphasis of athletics over education, but it does mean a 
changing of old for new. An indoor hockey rink is not far away on 
the Sesquieentennial Committee's building plans. This is definitely a 
step in the right direction, but we have needed one badly for the past 
ten or fifteen years. Next time you go over to the gym, take a look 

around and see what's there. You won't find too much.

Colby collected only five hits but 
clobbered Bowdoin's defending 
champions 12-4 in the curtain 
raiser on the State Series at 
Pickard Field. The day was cold, 
windy, and overcast but that didn't 
seem to bother Mule hurler Mac 
Andrews as he displayed a good 
fast ball coupled with a slow 
sweeping change of pace curve ball 
to fan eight Polar Bears. In addi- 
tion Andrews limited Bowdoin to 
only six hits and one walk to the 
first batter to face him, Wally 
Bartlett. Defensively Colby was 
infallible except for a fly ball drop- 
ped by left fielder George Palmer 
in Bowdoin's three-run sixth inn- 

The Polar Bears on the other 
hand would have been better off 
had they not even showed up. 
Three Bowdoin hurlers, Anthony, 
Hebert, and Coukos, issued 15 
walks and uncorked two wild 
pitches. These coupled with five 
errors, two passed balls, and a _ 
couple of stolen bases, more than . pionne/cf* 
made up for the absence of base 
hits. Actually Bowdoin outhit Col- 
by six to five. 

Anthony started on the hill for 
the Bears and threw eight straight 
balls to Colby lead-off man Dionne 
and right fielder Jacobs. Anthony 
looked like he might get out of 
trouble when catcher Dick Mar- 
shall picked off Jacobs «t first on 
a perfect throw to Frank Vecella 
who came in from second to cover. 
Anthony kept giving up walks, 
however, and Colby managed to 
score a run in the first. Colby 
scored three in the third. Bartlett 
pulled a Sam Jethroe in left field 
as he misjudged a routine fly ball 
that the wind caught hold of.

Later Ray Petterson, in right field, 
in an attempt to catch a Colby 
base runner who had rounded first, 
fired the ball over Cosgrove's head 
into the stands. 

Hebert came in in the third and 
pitched good ball until he weaken- 
ed in the sixth for two runs. Then

seventh when the Mules drove him 
to the showers. Danny MacFayden

three hits and Cosgrove had two. 
Neither connected for the long ball 
although Cosgrove bar.ged in three

By 9 m ep h Y. Rogers V? 

Bowdoin's tracksters barely 
managed to squeak out a victory 
over Springfield College, 68^67 at 
Brunswick last Saturday. 

The adverse weather conditions 
deserve an assist for the win by 
the Polar Bears. Fred Flemming, 
who picked up. a second place in 
the high jump, was the decisive 
factor; and Flemming, if the 
weather had been good, would 
have been in Orono, playing center- 
field for Bowdoin's diamondeers 
against the U. of Maine. 

Flemming's 5 feet 10 inches in 
this event was good for three and 
a half points, and it decided the 
outcome of the meet. The Bears' 
Paul Brinkman and Springfield's 
Curt Guild tied for third place. 
Ralph Muzzey of Springfield won 
the event with six feet, one eighth 

Getehell Stem 

Dick Getehell was Bowdoin's 
heavy scorer, winning the higph 
and low hurdles and picking up a 
second place in the 220. The 
Mageemen monopolized the high 
hurdles, as Carl Knight and Mel 
Totman finished behind Getehell 
for second and third places, re- 
spectively. Knight also finished be- 
hind Getehell in the low hurdles 
for another second. 

Dave Weis, Bowdoin speedster, 
captured top honors in the 220, 
and also won second spot in the 
100, trailing Norm Anderson of 

The Bears' Hugh Huleatt chalk- 
ed up a double victory for the 

Pohtr Bears, placing first in the 
880 and the mile. 

The big noise for Springfield 
was Curt Guild. Besides tying for 
third in the high .tump, he won the 
discus and the shot, and placed 
second to teammate Frank Mc- 
Grath in the hammer. 

Bowdoin's victory was due in 
large part to their ability to pick 
up second and third places. Brink- 
man scored a pair of seconds, and

Behind The Ivy Curtain 

By E. Ward 

It is with some regret that we 
niark the passing of an era. When 
we first entered this institution, it 
w ** a time-honored practice for 
•very senior, in the Spring of his 
|?»t year, to have dinner with 
President and Mrs. Sills, and to 
nave a bowl of Mrs. Sills' famed 
black bean soup. We had heard 
much about this delicacy, and were 
looking forward with some antici- 
pation to our first sampling of it. 
But, as with so many things, pro- 
gress has overtaken black bean 

We dropped in on President and 
Mrs. Coles, socially of course, last 
Sunday, and were treated to a 
informal after- " 
noon tea. The 
coffee was hot 
and savory, the 
food excellent. 
But we looked in 
vain for some 
black bean soup. 
It seems to have 
been replaced by 
small, delicious 
lobster rolls, and cheeze drops that 
looked deceptively like lemon 
cookies. We ate our fill (having 
purposely skipped lunch) and 
smoked a full share of the free 
cigarettes. All told, it was a plea- 
sant enough afternoon. 

We would like to suggest, how- 
ever, that perhaps President Sills' 
fine health points up tHe superior- 
ity of black bean soup to canapes 
as a steady diet.

There is the old saying that "in 
the Spring a young man's fancy 
turns to . . ." and etc. We can 
bear witness to this, but in an- 
other way, since it is our conten- 
tion that not only does the prover- 
bial young -man put his mind on 
thoughts of an amatory nature, but 
from time to time turns his talents 
to poetry. We are printing here a 
piece submitted to us by a couple 
of undergraduates who seem to 
have submitted to the vernal urge, 
but not in time to make the Quill. 
We sincerely hope that any gradu- 
ate reviewers will not be too harsh 
in their criticism. We are not 
literary critics, and our judgment 
is therefore not flawless.

Text Of Kirkland Speech 

[Continued From Page J] 
cation. Much more common among 
college presidents and professors 
is the assertion that Communists, 
as members of an authoritarian 
and disciplined organization, are 
not free "to follow the truth 
wherever it may lead," and hence 
are unfit, as Communists, to hold 
a position of scholarship and in- 
struction. Such arguments have 
weight. Lenin did advocate false- 
hood; the Communist Party is an 
exceptionally disciplined one. But 
it does not follow that every single 
Communist teacher was either ac- 
quainted with Lenin's endorsement 
of lying, interpreted it in the 
fashion President Dickey has 
chosen to adopt, or followed it as 
gospel; or that every single Com- 
munist teacher either knew of or 
adopted, if he did, a Communist- 
dictated line for the teaching of 
mathematics, philosophy, anthro- 
pology, psychology or Anglo-Saxon. 
These are not fanciful instances; 
they are Melds of learning in which 
dismissals have actually been made. 
Incidentally the argument that 
Communists are "not free to fol- 
low the truth wherever it may 
lead" involves for its spokesmen a 
logical dilemma in the case of the 
ex-Communist. Clearly the latter 
has now found the truth for he is 
on our side; equally clearly he 
must have been able to find it 
when he was a Communist for the 
finding preceded the conversion. 

The answer to this and all other 
confusion is simple. The question 
is not how a Communist teacher 
must behave because he is a Com- 
munist but how he behaves as an 
individual holding Communist 
views. No imperatives are more 
compelling than those of our bio- 
logical make-up. Yet no one in his 
senses would assert that because 
all women can theoretically bear 
children, all women are mothers. 
The logic is the same as that cur- 
rently applied to communist teach- 
ers. As a faculty member or ad- 
ministrative officer I would not be 
a party to the appointment of a 
Communist teacher; the uncer- 

tainties of his conduct as a teacher 
are too numerous. If a colleague 
whose abilities as a teacher and 
qualities as an individual I had 
come to respect over an associa- 
tion of many years proved to be a 
Communist, I would prefer the 
evidence of my own experience to 
that of a party label or a party 
card. On the other hand, if as a 
scholar and teacher he was biased, 
partisan, doctrainaire, vacillating, 
using the teacher's platform for 
irrelevancies or propaganda, then 
he should be dismissed. So much 
for generalizations, /s Justice 
Holmes observed long ago general 
principles do not settle concrete 
cases. I am inclined to believe that 
the appointment of Picasso to 
teach painting, of Prokofief to 
teach music, of Haldane to teach 
natural science would do an 
American academic community 
more good than harm. Certainly I 
would prefer such appointments 
to that ot Louis Budenz to teach 
economics. Nor can I forget that 
President Dickey's predecessor in 
the Dartmouth presidency, an- 
nour*»d in the twenties, an earlier 
period of tension, that if he could 
bring Lenin or Trotsky to Han- 
over to lecture on Communism he 
would do so. 

When last I had the opportunity 
to address a Bowdoin audience on 
the theme of academic freedom, a 
plague of loyalty oaths focused my 
remarks, if' I may steal a title from 
George Stewart, upon Hie Year of 
the Oath. Tonight a different cir- 
cumstance confronts us: The Year, 
of Investigation. On the national' 
scale there are at present two in- 
vestigative bodies concerned with 
Communism on faculties: one, a 
sub-committee of the Senate Judi- 
ciary Committee, is entitled the 
Committee on Internal Security. 
Its chairman is Senator Wiiliam F. 
Jenner of Indiana. The other is a 
Committee of the House of Repre- 
sentatives, the Un-American Ac- 
tivities Committee. A committee 
with a long and far from reputable 
history, its present chairman is 
Harold Velde of Illinois. Both com- 
mittees hold hearings at Washing-

Foreign Correspondent 
John Scott To Speak 

John Scott, a foreign corres- 
pondent for Time and Life, will 
speak on "America's Impact in 
Europe" in Smith Auditorium, 
Wednesday, May 13 at 8:15 p.m. 

The lecturer, who has written 
several books, is sponsored by the 
College, and the lecture is open to 
the public without charge. 

Mr. Scott lived in Russia for 
nine years from 1931-1940. For six 
of these years he worked in in- 
dustrial plants as a metal worker. 
During this period he gained an 
intimate knowledge of the Russian 
language and people. He later 
worked in Russian as a Moscow 

After travelling extensively in 
Asiatic Russia in 1940 and 1941 
Mr. Scott was finally expelled from 
that country just before Russia's 
entrance into the war. 

More recently he has been chief 
of news bureaus in Stockholm and 
Berlin. He is the author of Beyond 
The Urals, Duel For Europe, and 
Europe In Revolution.

in peripatetic pandemonium. Let 
me say at the outset I have no 
doubt of the right and the power 
of such committees to do what 
they are doing. What is more they 
can compel administrators and pro- 
fessors to attend their hearings by 
subpoena and can compel answers 
to their questions, with an excep- 
tion I shall note somewhat later, 
by punishment for contempt. I am 
not an advocate of those who break 
the law on either count nor of the 
retention of law breakers, except

Graham Urges Student 
Purchase Of Insurance 

Geoorge W. Graham '35, a mem- 
ber of Delta Kappa Epsilon and the 
Meddiebempsters, recently com- 
pleted a training program with the 
Provident Mutual Company of Phil- 
adelphia and is now the represent- 
ative of that organization on cam- 

Commenting on various aspects 
of life insurance, Graham recently 
pointed out that a majority of life 
insurance companies issue policies 
containing a "War Exclusion Rider" 
on those of "military age." At the 
moment, he explained, subject to 
change without notice, it is pos- 
sible to obtain a limited amount of 
top notch insurance without such a 

Graham also pointed out that the 
nature of one's work during the 
coming years may be such as to 
cause insurance companies to re- 
fuse to sell this insurance at stand- 
ard rates. An increase due to the 
type of work is often expensive, 
the figure sometimes running from 
$3.20 to $25 per year per $1000 
extra. For this reason, he urged 
students to think of purchasing 
insurance while they were still in 

The campus representative 
claimed that it was a logical time 
to act on such a plan since: 1. If 
you can pass an examination for 
this at this time, you can qualify 
for the low rate of your present 
age and occupation (student); 2. 
The only way you can have such a 
plan is to start; and 3. The guaran- 
teed values within the policy con- 
tracts provide for an Emergency 
Fund for future contingencies and 
protect you each year in case you 
decide to discontinue the savings.

good enough . . . tough enough . . . smart enough . . . 
if you can take it while you're learning to dish it

ARE YOU ELIGIBLE? To qualify as an Aviation

Time, Life Correspondent 
John Scott Speaks Tonight 

John Scott, foreign correspondent, author, and lecturer will speak 
tonight on "America's Impact in Europe" in Smith Auditorium at 8:15 
p.m. as part of his tour of America's colleges and universities. 

Mr. Scott has had a great amount of experience with Russia, 
having lived there for nine years from 1931 to 1940. During six of 
these years, until 1937, he worked in Russian industrial plants. He 
|was forced to leave his job when the great purge drove thousands of 
foreigners from Soviet industries. But. while Mr. Scott worked in 
these mills and plants he was able to master the Russian language 
and learned much about the people of Russia. 
Went To Russia 

John Scott was born in Phila- 
delphia in 1913 and attended 
schools in the United States and 
Switzerland. After graduating from 
George School in Pennsylvania he 
went to the University of Wiscon- 
sin for two years. After college, 
during the depression years, he put 
in a few months of intensive study 
at a General Electric training 
school where he earned a certifi- 
cate in metal working. It was at 
this time that Mr. Scott went to 
Russia as a worker. 

In 1940 and 1941 he traveled 
through the Balkans and Middle 
East making, reports on these sec- 
tions which attracted much atten- 
tion. Two weeks before Germany 
invaded Russia Scott was expelled 
from Soviet territory for "misrep- 
resenting" Russian activities. He 
went to Japan, and it was from 
here that he filled his first reports 
for Time. A year later he was a 
Time editor in New York. 

The year 1943 saw Mr. Scott in 
Washington covering the State de- 
partment for Time. He was later 
sent to London and then to Stock- 
holm where he headed the Time 
and Life oflice until 1945. For the 
next three years he was chief of 
Time's bureau in Berlin. Mr. Scott 
then returned to the New York 

March Of Time Job 

During 1951 he worked on an 
Air Force job for the March of 
Time. In 1952 he was in Germany 
and Austria, while he was also 
working in Greece, Turkey, Italy, 
Morocco, France and England. 

Mr. Scott's speech will be given 
in Smith Auditorium, Wednesday, 
May 13, at 8:15 p.m. After his lec- 
ture he will hold a conference in 
the Peucinian Room, sponsored by 
the Political Forum, at 9:45 p.m. 
All students interested are invited 
to attend. 

Receives Much Praise 

John Scott has received praise as 
a speaker from many educators. 
Among them is Vice President 
Joseph B. Shane of Swarthmore. 
He stated, "John Scott was one of 
the most successful . . . speakers 
we have had in a long time." 

Professor William B. Ward of 
Cornell said of Scott, "He delivered 
two lectures . . . that will not be 
forgotten. He did a marvelous job 
as a 'visiting professor*."

Walker Art Museum 
Given Strater Work 

Albert S. Roe, acting director of 
the Walker Art Museum, has an- 
nounced the gift of a painting en- 
titled "Ranch on Beaver Creek" by 
Harry Strater of Ogunquit. The 
large canvas will enlarge the mu- 
seum's collection of contemporary 

It was painted in oil in 1938, and 
is the last of a series of fine land- 
scapes done by the artist in Arizona 
during the middle Thirties. It 
shows a small ranch in the Verde 
Valley, south of Flagstaff and east 
of Prescott, in the heart of the 
Zane Grey country. • 

The artist has treated the desert 
sympathetically, according to Roe, 
producing a luminous and atmo- 
spheric expression of the sun-lit 
terrain; the harshness of the land 
has been subdued and allowed to 
appear only in the strength of the 
rolling hills and rugged mountains. 
The picture is familiar to many 
people through large color repro- 
ductions which have enjoyed wide- 
spread sales in all parts of the 

All MS Graduates Get 
T.C. Commissions But 
19 Are Reassigned 

Forty-one members of the Class, 
of '53 will receive commissions as 
second lieutenants in the U.S. 
Army with their diplomas, and all 
will be commissioned in the Trans- 
portation Corps. 

Although all new officers will 
technically be members of the T.C, 
19 will be assigned to other 
branches. No definite appointments 
have been made as yet, but among 
the branches requested by the 
Seniors have been Infantry, Ar- 
mored and Engineers. 

Summer Camp 

The Transportation Corps sum- 
mer camp will again be held at 
Fort Eustis, Virginia from June 20 
to August 1. All members of the 
Class of '54 enrolled in the ad- 
vanced division of the ROTC who 
have not previously attended the 
camp will be required to go this 

One student, Paul F Morin '54, 
will train at the Army Language 
School, Fort Riley, Kansas instead 
of at Eustis. 

Captain Luis F. Ochoa will be 
the officer from the Bowdoin de- 
tachment at the camp. Also at- 
tending from the college military 
force will be Sergeants Brown and 

.Many changes will be effected in 
the ranks of the ROTC instructing 
staff during the summer. As pre- 
viously announced in the ORIENT, 
Col. Walter H. Kennett will retire 
at the end of the current academic 
year. Lt. Col. Gregg C McLeod will 
finish his three year tour of serv- 
ice at the college in June and ex- 
pects to be reassigned. 

Major Joseph B. Miller, Adjutant 
of the Bowdoin detachment will 
also wind up his three years at this 
time, but he may be assigned a 
fourth year at Bowdoin. No official 
confirmation of this has been re- 
ceived as yet. Captain Luis F. 
Ochoasjs the only commissioned 
officer on the staff who will defin- 
itely return in the Fall. 

Masque And Gown To 
Present 'Hasty Heart' 
As Ivy Production 

The Masque and Gown's produc- 
tion of "The Hasty Heart" will be 
performed in Memorial Hall on 
Monday night at 8:15 and for Ivy 
on Friday. May 22, at 4:15. 

Donn C. Winner '56 and Charles 
W. Schoeneman '53 are the featur- 
ed performers, portraying the parts 
of Lachlen and Yank. 

The rest of the cast of the John 
Patrick play are: Donald M. Brew- 
er '55 as stage manager and the 
part of the orderly, Allan F. Wright 
'56 as Digger, Calvin B. Kendall '56 
as Kiwi, Theodore H. Howe '55 as 
Blossom, Benjamin G. M. Priest 
'56 as Tommy. Timothy F. P. Hely 
'56, a foreign student, as the colon- 
el, and Fredrika Joy as the nurse. 

Concurrent with the Broadway 
production, "The Hasty Heart" was 
done during the summer session of 
1946. The setting is in a convales- 
cent ward of a British general hos- 
pital in the rear of the Assam-Bur- 
ma front. Lachlen. a Scott, is 
doomed to die, though he doesn't 
know it. The soldiers, from all 
parts of the world, attempt to cheer 
him up, for he doesn't associate 
very much with anyone. They suc- 
ceed in this, but then the Scots- 
man learns of his fate. 

President Emeritus Kenneth C. 
M. Sills said, in a letter, of the 
Bowdoin production, "It seemed to 
me that the play was just the kind 
that may well be given at the 
college . . . ." 

The Broadway show featured 
Richard Basehart and John Lund. 
The "New York Times" said of the 
play, "Another good play was add- 
ed to the Broadway list . . . Treat-

Professor George H." Quinby said 
that staging the play has presented 
a difficult task. The Memorial Hall 
setting will be in an official hospi- 
tal instead of a bamboo structure. 

There are numerous props re- 
quired. The six beds must have 
mosquito netting, bed tables, and 
the usual accessories. Army and 
Navy hospitals have loaned the 
two sets of six pajamas which are 
needed. Six blankets had to be 
bought to simulate the military 
type. Several costumes such as 
kilts, were borrowed from a local 
collector. The Infirmary will also 
lend some props. Philip E. Shakir 
'56 and Arthur M. Seelye '56 are in 
charge of the props.

Peter K. Holmes '56 will work on 
the scenery. 

About the two performances, 
Professor Quinby said, "Although 
students are welcome on Monday 
and the general public on Friday, 
the expectation is that students 
will wait till Ivy and the public is 
therefore urged to attend the Mon- 
day night performance." 

The first half of the house is re- 
served at $1.20 for the public and 
$.60 for the students. The back sec- 
tion costs $.60 for the public and 
the blanket tax will admit a stu- 
dent. Ivy dates are considered as 
the general public.

by phoning 1-273W between 7:30

ance. Calls during the same period

Bowdoin's Polar Bears ran off with top honors last Saturday in 
the 54th annual state intercollegiate track and field meet for the 
third straight year. 

Headed by Dick Getehell in the hurdles andj Ray Biggs in the 
dashes, the team took first in seven of 15 events, including a sweep in 
the 220-yard dash. Biggs and Getehell were the only double winners 
in the meet, the former garnering 13 points and the latter 11.

Text Of Prof. Edward C. Kirkland 
Address On Academic Freedom 

Editor's Note — The text of Professor Edward C. Klrkland's ad-

sponsorship of the American Association of University Professors.

Victories in the hurdles and 
dashes plus a strong showing in the 
broad jump and hammer throw 
were sufficient for Bowdoin to cop 
the laurels. The Polar Bears 
amassed a total of 59 points. Maine 
followed with 36 and 1/6 with 
Bates third and Colby last 

Getehell set the only new meet 
record with a brilliant perform- 
ance in the low hurdles. His time 
of 23.8 eclipsed his old mark of 
24.1, which he set last year at 
Orono. For his outstanding per- 
formance in the meet, Getehell 
was awarded the Alan Hillman 
Memorial Trophy for the second 
time. With firsts in both hurdles 
and a third in the 220-yard dash, 
Getehell was second only to team- 
mate Ray Biggs in total points. 
Biggs won both dashes and placed 
second in the broad jump. 

Other outstanding performers in 
the day's events' were Bill Calkin 
of Maine with three seconds in 
both hurdles and the 100-yard 
dash, and Bob Goldsmith, who led 
Bates with a first in the 800 and 
a second in the mile. 

Flemmlng Winner 

Fred Flemming won the broad 
jump despite the -fact he was to 
play ball in the afternoon. His leap 
of 21 feet, ?4 inches set in the 
trials during the morning was good 
enough to withstand the finals. 
"Flapper" will have earned 10 var- 
sity letters before he is graduated 
a month from now. 

The hammer throw went to Bow- 
doin's Dick Wragg with Don 
Agostinelli second. Bowdoin might 
have done better in the field events 
had Paul Brinkman been able to 

The absence of the injured 
Gordy Milliken was also felt. Milli-

a hold upon 
faculty minds as "investigation," 
Investigation is just another word 
for research and research is a part 
of a professor's obligation and busi- 
ness. But as any reader of the 
newspaper or viewer of television 
knows, the activities of these com- 
mittees are not investigations as 
scholars know them. The bias and 
intemperance of their chairmen 
need no demonstration. The judi- 
ciousness of Senator Jenner's mind 
is well exemplified by his opinion 
of General George Marshall as "a 
front man for traitors." This of the 
devoted commander of the country 
was well blessed to have as chief- 
of-staff during World War H and

frightening. In effect the commit- 
tee has announced that it is not 
interested in a professor's actual 
performance. It will not observe 
his bias, partisanship, detachment, 
or competence in action. It is con- 
cerned only with a professor's past 
or present political beliefs and re- 
lies upon these, through inferenoe 
and emotion, to injure his scholarly 
reputation. If I were to devise a 
procedure designed to result in the 
maximum of smear with the mini- 
mum of evidence, I would choose 
the distinction Senator Jenner has 

In sum these committee activiti- 
ties are not investigations but 
trials of those individuals the com- 
mittee and others esteem bad. As 
a member of a committee revealed, 
in a hearing, their purpose is "to 
ferret out Communists." Thus 
these committees are courts out- 
side of the law, designed and oper- 
ated to make a crime of what is 
not a crime. To believe in the over- 
throw of government by force and 
violence is not illegal. The Consti-

Current Trend Could Take Away 
Bowdoin 9 s Individuality, Spirit 

What sets Bowdoin apart from any other small liberal arts 
college located in this section of the United States? What makes 
so many of us positive that this is the college best suited to our 
tastes and our needs? What prompts so many of the alumni, 
some now far physically removed from Bowdoin, to contribute i 
to the continued welfare of the College in such a great number 

Student feply Feels 
Hut Maimers' Letter 
flK's Negative Approach 

To the Editor: 

Having just finished reading 
Douglas Chalmers' carefully word- 
ed analysis on our Silent Genera- 
tion, I would like to take this op- 
portunity to refute Mr. Chalmers' 
basic assumptions and attitudes. 

Mr. Chalmers claims that our 
former ideals, especially in the 
realm if the moral and political, 
have "stagnated" and consequently 
proved "unattractive." According- 
ly, he concludes that our basic 
trouble stems from the fact that 
"there is nothing interesting to 
talk about." 

Mr. Chalmers apparently would 
have us discard the ideal because, 
in our struggle to achieve better 
things, we either failed or inhumed 
the charm in which he believes all 
ideals are embossed. Even though 
•life has been a partner to human 
faults and imperfections and we 
realize that we can never achieve 
a decisive or lasting victory over 
human transgressions, we must 
forever strive to do our utmost. 
In hoping for more than can be 
realized, we realize more than we 
hoped for. The ancient Latin say- 
ing — Poussunt quod posse putant 
— They can because they think 
they can, is still applicable. 

Mr. Chalmers claims that origin- 
ally realistic theories become un- 
inspiring and are shorn of their 
color as they are modified with 
changing conditions. He says that 
'the edge has gone off the ideal." 
But in the transition from yester- 
day's beliefs to tomorrow's deeds, 
we must not neglect the enlight- 
enment today may bring. In our 
classes we have learned how forms 
and appearances may change, but 
basic ideas remain the same. 

I cannot help but feel that Mr. 
Chalmers condescends to accept 
the negative approach where more 
vigor and greater faith in one's 
own capacities are needed. 

Philip E. Shakir '56 

of ways? Some of this attachment, of course, would come at 
any institution where the buildings, the faculty, and the students 
become a part of a familiar scene. Our ties to Bowdoin are 
formed from a more important, a stronger spirit. This spirit 
is hard to define and hard to describe. It is a spirit which 
crosses the lines of fraternities and college classes. It is a spirit 
which makes the relationships between the faculty, the students, 
and the administration, easy and relaxed. This general in- 
formality and lack of tension, a pleasant contrast to the situation 
found at many other colleges, has been expressed in that tradi- 
tion, the "Bowdoin Hello". 

It is granted that Bowdoin is far from being a college 
without faults. Some stem from the ever present need of a 
larger plant and endowment to work with. Others which could 
be mentioned are a curriculum in need of several adjustments 
and a faculty with more teachers in that exact sense. Perhaps 
the biggest fault is the lack of a student body which is alert to 
the trends, movements, and currents of the outside world. It 
is a student body which lives too much within a provincialism 
that is more than geographical. 

This then is the picture at Bowdoin. It is a college, which 
despite its faults, has that air and that spirit which makes it a 
better college. It is a college which we can be genuinely proud 

Into this picture is being cast a trend which could easily 
turn the easy and relaxed relationship now existing into one, 
strained and full of uncertainty. Bowdoin, in this trend, is be- 
ing compared too often with other colleges. Why make these 
changes because several colleges similar to us have instituted 
them? Why take away the individuality that sets Bowdoin 
apart from these other schools? Denied its strong fraternity 
system, now comparatively free of an elaborate and restricting 
list of regulations, and stripped of its refreshing informal air, 
Bowdoin would be reduced to a level from which it could not 
compete favorably with other colleges. The spirit would be 
gone, and, the fraternities would be largely useless encum- 

Bowdoin can make any necessary changes without the 
sacrifice of its spirit and its individuality. Those aims for which 
the College should strive can be made without alterations to 
its basic structure and relationships. The path which could lead 
to a comparative lifeless college can be avoided. Bowdoin can 
remain Bowdoiii.

"or of any other criminal statute." 
The exoneration of mere member- 
ship could hardly be more explicit. 
Nor according to the Act does the 
registration of the Communist Par- 
ty or of its individual members as 
agents of a foreign power change 
the situation on this count. These 
lawless courts having accomplished 
by investigation what cannot be 
accomplished by law then adminis- 
ter a lawless justice. It turns the 
so-called criminal over to such col- 
lege and university administrators 
J as have by their utterances declar- 
ed that membership in the Com- 
munist Party per se is reason 
enough to dismiss the individual 
from his job. The whole extra-legal 
scheme works well; the punish- 
ment has generally ensued. 

Often before the procedures here 
set forth have been anticipated by 
careful analysis or demonstrated in 
practice, college administrators 
have welcomed such investigations 
or have, like the Association of 
American Colleges, welcomed such 
an investigation one day and two 
days later announced they had no 
confidence in any inverstigating 
committees as now constituted. If 
by welcome, such administrators 
mean "they have nothing to hide," 
let them say so and say no more. 
If by welcome they mean they hope 
to get a case for academic freedom 
before the Committees, Congress, 
or the public, let them examine the 
history, the motives, the methods 
and the personnel of these parti- 
cular investigating committees.

Every year Wellesley Seniors, 
garbed in caps and gowns, take 
part in the May Day hoop race. 
The girls roll hoops over a rigorous 
course laid out in the college quad- 
rangle. To add to the sport it has 
become traditional for Harvard un- 
dergraduates to effect a disguise, 
hide near the finish line, and then 
attempt to surprise and defeat 
their opponents. To avert the 
more than likely possibility that 
the Harvard men will be there, 
Wellesley freshmen are stationed 
along the track with the authority 
to dunk any and all fakers in near- 

go home." In spite of the protests 
the student governing body has 
failed to initiate any constructive 
reforms. The next step will prob- 
ably be direct intervention by the 
president of the college. Whereas 
everyone concerned would prefer 
an undergraduate action. 

At Dartmouth a number of 
freshmen literally knocked the 
wind out of the machinery of their 
student government. During a re- 
cent party the men involved were 
watching three small boys playing 
outside one of the dorms. The 
boys answered the students' cheers 
with "profanity and obscene ges- 
tures," after which they clamber- 
ed up a fire escape and into a room 
demanding drinks. These were 
forthcoming and it was not long 
before one eight-year-old had con- 
sumed a half pint of applejack 
brandy and some Imperial whiskey. 
Top. unsteady to" walk home by 
himself, the boy was carried back 
by his sister. He was then taken to 
the hospital for observation. Here 
the doctors revealed that he was 
suffering from alcoholic poisoning,

After learning of the case one 
amazed college official commented, 
"This is the kind of thing you read 
about happening in a hooo jungle." 
The freshman counselling office is 
initiating a plan for orientation in 
social responsibility for freshmen, 
due to the incident. And the Dart- 
mouth paper stated that, "In light 
of this case it is the job of every 
man to give battle to the fatuous 
stereotype of the hard-drinking, 
hard-fighting, hard-cursing Dart- 
voice of reason has no chance; a 
calm exposition of a case which de- 
pends for acceptance upon subtlety 
and distinction gains no hearing. If 
it did, well-intentioned reporters 
for respectable journals could hard- 
ly communicate the full news 
through the press. Nor will com- 
mittee chairmen of the Jenner and 
Velde stripe give such philosophy 
an airing through committee re- 
ports. Ask the hunter without a 
rifle to welcome the charging lion; 
ask the motorist stalled on the 
crossing to welcome the oncoming

its apparent failure during the re 
cent weekend. 

Glancing at the brighter side of 
things we find that the month of 
May has brought with it the re- 
newal of several famous college 
traditions. At Bryn Mawr a raid 
by spring-fevered Hamilton stu- 
dents failed to prevent the girls 
from performing their annual Fer- 
tility Day ceremony. A huge May- 

a disease which easily afflicts chil- by Lake Waban. One Cambridge 

sophomore would have succeeded 
except for the efforts of a rough 
and ready frosh who discovered 
him only 50 yards from the ribbon 
and then submerged him. Two Har- 
vard medical students decided 
stamina and not disguise was the 
answer. They entered the race at 
the starting line costumed in multi- 
colored peasant skirts, substituting 
hoops made out of coat hangers. 
They were also within a few yards 
of the goal before the Wellesley 
freshmen managed to stop them. 
The victor: A four letter winning 
Senior who now is complaining of 
laryngitis and describes herself as 
a "physical wreck." 

They will do infinite damage to the 
academic community. 

To the query, what practical dif- 
ference does it make whether ad- 
ministrators or professors welcome 
such investigations? there is a 
superficial cogency. Whether we 
welcome them or not, we have to 
attend and we have to answer un- 
der the duress of pain and penalty. 
But the question of our attitude 
will not down, for the response of 
the academic community to such 
investigations has deep implica- 

tions for the course of investiga- 
tions in our time, for the fate of 
individual teachers who invoke the 
Fifth Amendment against self-in- 
crimination at Congressional hear- 
ings, and for the relation of col- 
leges and universities to -the state. 
On the first count the country is 
so ravaged by an epidemic of in- 
vestigations in general that it is a 
grave question whether we ought 
not to revise our forefathers' divi- 
sion of the governmental structure 
into the judicial, executive and leg- 
islative departments to read the 
judicial, executive and investiga- 
tive. Congress will never get over 
its loose habits in authorizing and 
conducting investigations until citi- 
zens stop welcoming and begin to 
resist them. 

The problem of the Fifth Amend- 
ment, "no person shall be compell- 
ed in any criminal * case to be a 
witness against himself," requires 
somewhat more extended treat- 
ment. This is a constitutional right 
which the citizen can legally claim 
and which investigating commit- 
tees, whether of their own will or 
under instruction from the courts, 
have freely recognized. What does 
it mean? I have consulted a con- 
siderable array of legal counsel 
without the payment of fees. In 
short I have read what lawyers 
have written. As might be expected 
the gentlemen of the law disagree. 
A statement signed by Chafee and 
Sutherland of the Harvard Law 
School, but actually prepared by 
many hands, has from the emin- 
ence of its source and the reputa- 
tion of Professor Chafee as a de- 
fender of civil liberty gained a 
deserved acceptance. It declares 
the Fifth Amendment is to pre- 
vent public officials from securing 
evidence by torture rather than by 
leg or brain work. Incidentally this 
theory traces back to one of the 
earliest commentaries on the Con- 
stitution, that of Justice Story. 
Other lawyers give a somewhat 
wider meaning. The origin and rea- 
son for the constitutional privilege 
of the Fifth Amendment is, one 
wrote, "to protect innocent men 
against the inquisitorial and mani- 
festly unjust method of inter- 
rogating witnesses, the temptation 
of prosecutors to press, browbeat, 
and entrap them into fatal con- 
tradictions, and against the zeal 
of the prosecutor and public 
clamor for the punishment of 
crime." Obviously the professor 
who enters this plea before a con- 
gressional investigating committee 
to what is known among the 
derisive as "the $64 question," 
"Are you now or have you ever 
been a Communist?" means what 
his counsel understands the privi- 
lege to mean. Nor can we neglect 
the circumstances under which the 
plea is made. If the professor 
admits he is or has been a Com- 
munist, let me repeat in itself not 
necessarily a crime, he has no 
further defense against naming his 
associates and companions. Such 
squealing is repugnant to men of 
principle no matter how pleasant 
to the professional ex-Communist. 
If the professor admits he is a 
Communist he is also slated to lose 
his job at the hands of administra- 
tors who have declared Com- 
munism per se is a cause for dis- 
missal, or in the metropolitan col- 
leges of New York City by an even 
more automatic device. As a result 
of the Seabury hearings in the 
thirties, Article 903 was inserted in 
the Revised City Charter of New 
York to effect the discharge of 
police, firemen and other civil em- 
ployees who refused to answer 
questions about their income on j 
the ground of self-incrimination. J 
The refusal to answer was the 
ground for dismissal. Providence 
has placed this weapon in the 
hands of the Board of Higher Edu-

At Age Of 52; College 
Employee Since 1929 

Bertram A. Varney, a college 
employee since 1929 and a lifelong 
resident of Brunswick, died sud- 
denly at his home Monday May 

The late Mr. Varney was born 
in Brunswick November 4, 1901 
the son of Kingsbury M. and Lizzie 
Fuller Varney. He was educated 
in the local schools and in 1931. 
married the former Charlotte A. 
Reed. He mas a member of Dirigo 
Grange and was a member of Fort 
George iNo. 3, K of P. 

The former janitor of Winthrop 
Hall is survived by his wife, three 
brothers: Ralph G. Varney Sr., 
Benjamin Earl Varney, and Robert 
K. Varney; two sisters: Mrs. Ruth 
E. Weybrant and Mrs. Margaret 
B. Warming, all of Brunswick. His 
brother Benjamin Earl Varney is 
now the janitor of Appleton Hall. 

Funeral services were held last 
Thursday afternoon at his home 
on Maine Street, with Rev. James 
A. Doubleday '41 officiating. He 
was buried in Riverside Cemetery.

cation and New York City counsel 
has advised them they cannot dis- 
card it — if they would. 

If I were a college administrator 
or faculty member with power in 
the matter, I would certainly 
regard a resort to the Fifth 
Amendment not as a final pre- 
sumption of guilt but at .least 
arousing a suspicion of something 
not innocent. I would initiate a 
further and broader investigation 
of all the circumstances involved 

in such individual cases. I would 
not hamper my freedom of decision 
in the matter by any preliminary 
welcome to current Congressional 
investigations, or by any condition- 
ed reflex to their findings. For it is 
quite clear that those bent upon 
purging our faculties of elements 
they regard as undesirable feel 
they have at last found in the ap- 
peal to the Fifth Amendment the 
gadget for dealing with problems 
whose complexities they neither 
can nor will understand. The sum- 
mons, the question, the plea of 
self-incrimination, the automatic 
discharge. — all these arc t|»e 
equivalent of Senator McCarthy's 
reiterated appeal to the lie detect- 
or, or more closely resemble the 
test applied to witches in the 
Middle Ages: throw them into the 
water, if they floated they were 
guilty and if they sank they were 

But the arguments that have 
gathered around the refusal to 
answer under the Fifth Amend- 
ment have not all been legalistic. 
They have taken on a moral tone 
and the resulting statements of 
principle, sometimes thoughtlessly 
uttered, have disturbing implica- 
tions for individual citizens, for 
our institutions of higher learning, 
and for the very nature of our 
democracy. Thus Chafee and 
Sutherland start their opinion, 
from which I have already quoted, 
with the statement: "The under- 
lying principle to remember in 
considering the subject is the duty 
of the citizen to cooperate in 
government." Both New York Uni- 
versity and Rutgers University 
have recently applied in more 
specific fashion this obiter dictum. 
The administration of the -former 
institution, in seeking the dismis- 
sal of Edwin Berry Burgum, a 
member for nearly thirty years of 
its English Department, cited his 
refusal to answer several questions 
put by a Senate investigating com- 
mittee as "violating an obligation 
of a member of the teaching pro- 
fession" and "as conduct unbecom- 
ing a teacher." Recently also the 
trustees of Rutgers University, 
with the concurrence of President 
L. W. Jones, dismissed two profes- 
sors for invoking the Fifth Amend- 
ment before the Senate Sub-Corn 
mittee on Internal Security. One 
of the professors subsequently as- 
sured the president that he had 
not been nor was he a Communist ; 
a faculty committee after a pro- 
longed investigation recommended 
the University take no action 
against either teacher. Nonethe- 
less their careers at Rutgers were 
terminated on the ground that "a 
university teacher has an obliga- 
tion to answer the questions of a 
legally constituted investigatory

By Robert M. Hunt '54, ORIENT Sports Editor 

Mickey Mantle's colossal clout in Washington's Griffith Stadium 
has sent rabid fans scurrying to the record books and has sparked 
widespread discussion in general with the accent on the real long pokes 
and the circuit drives that might be rated as oddities. 

Dan Daniel in his column in the Sporting News writes about a few 
of the craziest home runs he has ever seen. In commenting on the 
oddest and longest homer he had ever witnessed Mr. Daniel tells of 
the one with which George Cutshaw second baseman of the Dodgers, 
clinched the pennant in 1916 against the Phillies at Ebbetts Field. 
The right field wall at that time was some 15 feet high. Now there 
is a tall screen top of that concrete barrier with clearance 40 feet 
above field level. 

Cutshaw drove a liner to the base of the concrete wall. The 
ball picked up a lot of crazy English and started to climb the fence. 
It seemed that it went up inch by inch. Finally it reached the top of the 
wall and dropped into Bedford Avenue. 

Another odd homer in Mr. Daniel's experience is the blast off 
the bat of Jimmie Foxx in Yankee Stadium with Lefty Gomez on the 
mound. The odd part was not in its execution but in what preceded it. 

Foxx was in his heyday with the Athletics feared by all pitchers 
especially by the lefthanders. With Jimmie standing at the plate, 
Bill Dickie sent out the sign for the pitch, and Gomez shook it off. 
Dickey called for another pitch, and once 'more Gomez shook him off. 
Finally the Yankee backstop strode out to the mound and asked Lefty 
to stop fooling and pitch. 

"Bill, I just don't want to throw the ball at all," said Gomez. 
Dickey went back to his crouch, El Goof threw the curve, and Double 
X blasted into the top deck of the left field stands. 

Then there is also the famous home run that wasn't a home run 
and it cost Lou Gehrig the man who hit it, the home run championship. 
Lou hit the ball over the right field wall in Griffith Stadium with Lyn 
Lary on first base back in 1931. Lary who occasionally had a lapse 
of memory, as Daniel points out, jogged past second, touched third, 
and headed into the dugout. Gehrig was dumbfounded when he was 
called out at home plate for passing Lary on the bases. It wasn't 
merely a home run that the Iron Man lost it was sole ownership of 
the American League home run championship. When the season 
closed it was discovered that Lou and Babe Ruth had tied for the 
crown with 46 roundtrippers apiece. 

A Stadium drive which would have been a homer today but which 
at the fime was only the longest double in the history of the park, 
was exploded by Tony Lazzeri. As Dan Daniel tells the story the 
ball landed in the left field bullpen which in those days was not fenced 
off. The point at which the ball struck was more than 400 feet from 
the plate. The ball was in play. Something happened and the missile 
bounded high in the air into the left field bleachers for a ground rule 
double of some 460 feet. Nobody yet has ever driven a fair ball out of 
Yankee Stadium. 

The homiest home run recalled was hit by Max Flack of the Cubs 
in July, 1921 against the Giants at Wrigley Field, Chicago. Flack and 
his family lived in a second floor apartment across the street from 
the right field wall. Max belted his homer right into his living room. 
He got himself a baseball, but lost a windowpane in the deal.

Bowdoin Takes first 
Golf Match, Downing

Bowdoin won its first golf match 
of the season by defeating Colby, 
lSK-11%, as Dick Stimets and 
Jim Cook turned in rounds of 77 
and 78 respectively last Wednes- 
day afternoon at Brunswick. 

The margin of victory for Bow- 
doin was found in their four 
singles wins, while Colby amassed 
most of their total in the foursome. 
Bowdoin previously had lost to 
Maine and Bates.

Bowdoin Freshmen In 
11-2 Win Over Exeter; 
Ayer Scatters 4 Hits 

The Bowdoin freshmen ran over 
Exeter Academy, 11-2, last Satur- 

Lefty Ajwr pitched well for the 
Polar Cubs, being very stingy with 
the base hits. After the first inn- 
ing, in which Exeter scored two 
runs, Ayer gave up only two singles 
for the rest of the game. 

John Libby, Bowdoin shortstop, 
was the big gun for the freshmen. 
He was at bat six times and reach- 
ed base five of those times with 
two singles, a double, two walks, 
one with the bases full, and finally 
hit into a fielder's choice in his 
last appearance at the plate. 

Besides Libby's three hits, 
Kreider, Plasso, and Rigby picked 
up two hits apiece. The Fiosh also 
completed four twin killings. Half 
of Exeter's hits were picked up 
by Capt. Mike O'Hearn, who 
singled and doubled.

Pictures Of Bowdoin Win At State Meet 

The Bowdoin tennis team split 
in two contests with State Series 
foes last week, beating Bates, 6-3, 
but losing to Colby by an identical 

Playing against Bates at Lewis- 
ton, Coach Sam Ladd's team start- 
ed the season off on the right foot. 
Defending State intercollegiate 
singles champion Bill Clark led the 
way by winning his singles match 
against Prothero, and then teaming 
up with Bill Nieman for a doubles 
victory over Prothero and Reuling. 
Nieman also was a double victor, 
winning his singles match over 
Dave Dick in two sets. 

The two singles matches won by 
Bates were anything but easy con- 
quests. Moose Friedlander gave' 
Bates' Captain Alan Goddard a 
difficult time before finally suc- 
cumbing after three sets and 39 
games. In the other match Skip 
Howard made things no easier for 
Adrian Auger, who needed a 14- 
game third set to notch the win. 
The other Bates victory came in the 
doubles, where Dick and Mutter 
stopped Bowdoin Capt. Burch 
Hindle and Jim Wilson in three 

Colby Win Undecisive 

The Polar Bear didn't fare as 
well against Colby in a home en- 
gagement. In the contest which 
was much closer than the score 
might indicate, Colby won four of 
the singles competitfon and two of 
the doubles. 

However, a look at the scores 
show that it wouldn't have taken 
much for a few of Colby's victories 
to be turned into defeats. 

Wins by Bowdoin in the singles 
were by Nieman, who stopped 
Lowery in three sets, and Hindle, 
who won easily over Colby's Ull- 
man. In the other singles matches, 
Clark fell before Crosby, and 
Friedlander likewise fell victim to 
Gordon; Howard and Ben Ford 
were outlasted by-Lavin and Baer, 
respectively, both of these matches 
taking three sets before they were

Coach Ladd had no pessimistic 
feelings as a result of the Colby 
contest. He feels that his charges 
can turn the tables on them when 
they meet again, since most of the 
matches Colby won were extended 
to three sets. . 

This week Bowdoin plays the U. 
of Maine away and Bates at home. 
On the basis of Bates' 7-4 win over 
the Black Bears recently, Ladd 
believes that Bowdoin should get 
by Maine without undue difficulty.

Getchell was awarded a trophy for the outstanding trackman competing in the 54th State of Maine track 
meet last Saturday, May 9th, in Lewiston, Maine. (Right) Maj. General Frank E. Lowe is giving the 
award to Getchell. Bowdoin took first place in the meet, with Maine, Bates and Colby finishing in that 
order. High point man (insert) for the afternoon in Lewiston was Ray Biggs of Bowdoin, shown taking 
an easy first in the 100 yard dash. Biggs managed to compile 13 of Bowdoin's winning total of points. 
It was the Polar Bears' 32nd state title since the meet's origin. 

Bowdoin Squares Baseball 
Record With Bates Victory 

Bowdoin's off and on Polar Bears 
took a 9-6 state series win from 
Bates behind Louie Audet last Fri- 
day at Pickard Field to bring their 
series record to two wins and two 
losses. They remain in third place, 
a game b&ck of second place Colby 
and a game and a half behind 

Bates scored twice in the first 
inning on two singles and a pair 
of errors. Bowdoin came back with 
four tallies in their half, however, 
as Wally Bartlett opened with a 
sharp single t,o left, McGovern beat 
out a bunt and Fred Flemming 
gave the major league scouts pres- 
ent an eyeful as he parked the ball 
over the -right field fence for a 
three run homer. Barry Nichols 
singled, stole, and scored on Corby 
Wolfe's single to make it 4-2. 

Singles by Bartlett, McGovern, 
an error by the Bates Shortstop, 
and a ground out pushed across 
two more Bowdoin runs in the sec- 
ond. Bates starter, Dave Higgins, 
was removed after the first two 
men had reached safely and was 
replaced by Dave Crowley who 
pitched creditably for the re- 
mainder of the game. 

In The Fifth 

Audet blanked the Bobcats 
through the second, third and 
fourth innings, but in the fifth, Hall 
led off by reaching on McGovern's 
boot. He stole second, went on to 
third on a wild pitch, and scored 
on Herb Morton's single, making 
the score 6-3. 

A Wolfe single and an Audet 
double got the run back for the 
Polar Bears in their half of the 
inning. They added another in the 
sixth as McGovern led off with a

walk and moved up on Flemming's 
single. Cosgrove walked to load 
the bases and then came the oddest 
play of the game. Nichols flied to 
centerfield to score McGovern from 
third. The relay to the plate was 
cut off and Fred Flemming was 
trapped between second and third 
and run down. Then a relay to 
first caught Cosgrove a few steps 
off the bag and he, too was tagged 
out, completing the triple play. 

Bowdoin added one more run in 
the seventh as Dick Marshall was 
hit by a pitch, took second on an 
attempted pick-off play which 
went awry and scored on Louie 
Audets long hit to left which Rich- 
ard Raia caught up with but could- 
n't hold. 


Actually Marshall was tagged 
out over-sliding third base as he 
tried for two after the wild pick- 
off throw. The umpires waved him 
back to second however, ruling one 
base on an overthrow of first base, 
and stirring up a big "rhubarb" 
with Bates. 

The Bobcats got two more un- 
earned runs in the ninth on a 
scratch single, a hotly debated play 
at first on which Cosgrove was rul- 
ed to have pulled his foot off the 
base, and George Schroeder's pop 
fly single which scored both run- 

Bowdoin's inner defenses were 
weak and every infielder was 
charged with at ieast one error. 
The Polar Bears committed six 
errors in all and only one Bates

Tufts Edges Polar Bear Varsity 
6-5 With Two Ninth Inning Runs 

Bowdoin lost a closely-fought 
game to Tufts, 6-5, last Saturday 
at Pickard Field. 

The Polar Bears started off in 
good fashion, scoring three runs in 
the first inning. Hits by Walt Bart- 
lett, John McGovern and Barry 
Nichols plus two errors resulted in 
the three runs. 

It was the ninth inning which 
spelled defeat for Bowdoin, as the 
Jumbos came up with two runs off 
Hal Anthony- With one out, Ben- 
nett doubled, Myers walked, and 
Schmid singled, An infield out and 
a passed ball accounted for the two 

Jim Hebert pitched 63 innings 
for Bowdoin, before giving way to 
Anthony. Hebert gave up only two 
runs, both of them in the fourth. 
Anthony allowed a run in the 
eighth on a walk, sacrifice, and two 

The Polar Bears had been in front 
until the fateful ninth, when Tufts 
rallied or their runs. After their 
three runs in the first, Bowdoin 

picked up singletons in the fifth 
and eighth. The run in the fifth 
came on Fred Flemming's double 
and an infield error. 

Bartlett, Flemming and Marsh- 
all each had two hits, while only 
one Jumbo player was able to pick 
up a pair, and that was O'Brien. 

Both teams left eleven men on 
the bases. Hebert gave up four 
base hits, as did Anthony. But it 
was the walks that hurt the Bow- 
doin nine, as three of the ten walks 
given were turned into runs

Text Of Kirkland Speech 

(Continued from Page f 
body concerning memtamMp in 
the Communist Party." The 
Pamphlet explaining this decision. 
Published at university expense 
•nd widely distributed — I re- 
ceived no less than three copies — 
is entitled Academic Freedom and 
**▼»« Responsibility. 

Although the documents here 
under scrutiny do not always state 
distinctions with precision, the in- 
ference is justified that they are 
operating under the Chafee and 
Sutherland statement of a duty of 
cooperation owed by citizens to the 
government or Its agencies. I am 
concerned now with this duty sole- 
ly as a reason for academic dis- 
missals. At once the carerul aca- 
demic administrator will ask: 
What are the details and what 
k the extent of that civic duty 
or obligation? Where is it formu- 
lated with precision and authori- 
ty? For instance was Nicholas 
Murray Butler indeed justified in 
World War I in dismissing from 
Columbia University the eminent 
scholar and psychologist, Profes- 
sor J. M. Cattell, because he wrote 
to his congressman protesting the 
passage of the draft act ? Such was 
not the opinion of one of Cattell's 
eminent colleagues, Charles A. 
Beard, who resigned in protest, 
nor of the American Association of 
University Professors. Are institu- 
tions of higher learning justified in 
wartime in dismissing from their 
faculty conscientious objectors of 
draft age though the Selective 
Service Act makes legal provision 
for their exemption? The Ameri- 
can Association of University Pro- 
fessors has ruled otherwise and I 
believe moderate opinion generally 
holds that a college and university 
is not justified in dismissing pro- 
fessors on the ground that their 
pacifist convictions violate a civic 
obligation to their government. Is 
a university administrator justified 
In dismissing a professor who in 
war advocates the making of 
peace? The ground for such a dis- 
missal may very well be that it is 
the citizen's duty, as Chafee and 
Sutherland argue, "to cooperate in 
government." What if a professor 
opposes the peace aim of a United 
States president? During World 
War I a committee of the AmeriJ 
can Association of University Pro- 
fessors, headed by the distinguish- 
ed philosopher, Arthur O. Lovejoy, 
declared in the intensity of that 
crusade that "to desire anything 
less than the realization of the 
essential objects which have been 
set forth by the president of the 
United States is to desire the 
triumph of moral evil in the 
world." In view of these convic- 
tions the committee exhibited com- 
mendable restraint in feeling that 
those who differed from the Wil- 
sonian program should not be dis- 
missed from college faculties. 

•Nor is the issue of obligation or 
duty made any easier by a con- 
sideration of those likely to define 
it. In the absence of any other 
Sanhedron, we might turn to 
faculties in our quest for answer. 
Even on the issue of Communist 
teachers the profession is divided. 
If we turn to college presidents 
and their boards, the definition of 
duty will vary from campus to 
campus. While President Jones and 
his trustees are dismissing profes- 
sors, because their plea of self- 
incrimination does not fulfill their 
civic obligations, President John- 
son of Temple, entrusted with the 
harassed Voice of America, an- 
nounces that henceforth the broad- 
casts from that agency will not 
stress dishwashers and streamlined 
cars but "our belief that a man 
should not be required to do as the 
government wishes him to do . . . ." 
Actually anyone with experience 
knows that the chief formulators 
of a citizen's duties will be the 
special Interest groups and the 
patrioteers, the self-righteous, the 
busybodies, and that unhappily 
large number of Americans who 
feel that it is their duty to lay 
down the duty of others and make 
them perform it. In fact an 
emphasis upon duty and obligation 
in this matter of academic tenure 
and freedom will introduce that 
form of tyranny against which our 
enlightened forefathers were con- 
stantly on guard when they wrote 
and spoke of their preference for 
a government of law and not of 
men. Though it is desirable that 
the nation have the good will and 
the love of its citizens and that it 
shall so act as to deserve this 
deeper loyalty, all that government 
in the last analysis can demand of 
its citizens is obedience to the 
laws. The university and college in 
the matters of appointment and re- 
tention will be wise to require no 
more from its professors than this 
simple obligation. Capricious, con- 

tradictory, and impromptu defini- 
tions of civic duty are not suffi- 
cient justification for denying a 
man of learning that tenure and 
freedom which is the very breath 
of his calling. 

(Nor does the danger in this con- 
cept of welcome, of cooperation, 
of civic obligation stop here. Such 
thinking operates on the assump- 
tion that the government is benign, 
perhaps even infallible. The found- 
ers of this nation who had looked 
upon the bare face of government- 
al tyranny and found it intolerable 
had far different notions. That 
generation read with approval Tom 
Paine's utterance "that govern- 
ment like dress is the badge of our 
lost innocence." The Constitution 
they formed established a govern- 
ment of limited powers; reserved 
the rest to the states or the people; 
and in the first ten amendments 
put beyond the reach of tyranny 
and popular majorities the rights 
of the individual citizen. Enlight- 
ened Americans of a later time 
reiterated these insights. If there 
were room on their library build- 
ings, colleges and universities 
might well engrave thereon JSmer- 
son's classic sentences: "The state 
is a poor, good beast who means 
the best; it means friendly, a poor 
cow who does well by you, so do 
not grudge it its hay. Take this 
handful of clover and welcome. 
But if you go to hook me when I 
walk in the fields, then poor cow 
I will cut your throat." It used to 
be good American doctrine that 
American citizens could haul off 
and look their government in the 
eye without censure and without 
prattle of civic obligations. I re- 
member my Vermont carpenter 
who observed of a flood control 
dam he regarded as a wasteful 
expenditure of money, "I am be- 
ginning to lose my respect for the 
United States government." I com- 
mend this four-square utterance to 
the anxious and the timid. 

Indeed it is difficult for the pre- 
sent generation, accustomed to the 
New Deal and the Fair Deal when 
governmental power was identified 
with the welfare of the downtrod- 
den and the underprivileged, when 
government was described as "all 
of us," to remember that the state 
can be hostile to the citizens' in- 
terests and, far from favoring, may 
actually endanger the highest 
principles and aspirations of man- 
kind. Alas, this could be true of 
our own country. Just as many of 
the working class in the last part 
of the nineteenth century could 
rightly feel that the state was 
hostile to them, just as in our own 
day many business men have come 
to believe the state indifferent to 
their rights, professors should 
realize that they stand at Xhe 
moment when officers of the state 
are revealing themselves as the 
foes of intellectual freedom and 
the jailors of its unhampered spirit 
of inquiry. Unhappily the past has 
furnished illustrations enough of 
this obscurantism; our own day 
has seen the Nazi and the Com- 
munist regimes of Europe advance 
the theory that the university 
should serve the state and they 
have utilized their brutal power 
to enforce this subservience. Shall 
we imitate them? 

That is the issue here and now. 
The loyalty oaths and the congres- 
sional investigations are more than 
attacks upon individuals; they are 
attacks upon the self-government 
of our institutions of higher learn- 
ing. In effect legislators, and usual- 
ly the most irresponsible and un- 
enlightened among them, are de- 
ciding whom the universities shall 
hire and whom they shall continue 
to employ. This is but the first 
step. If we do not challenge it with 
resolution the right thus sur- 
rendered to outsiders can be em- 
ployed with equal plausibility to 
justify the censorship of textbooks, 
the purge of our college and uni- 
versity libraries, the presence of 
spies and snoopers in the class- 
room. Our government, it is said. 
is one of checks and balances. So 
is our society. Along with the 
church and college and university 
must stand apart, free to correct, 
to check, and to instruct the

passions, the special interests, the 
fallacies, and the shortsightedness 
displayed by men in the political 
process and elsewhere. In the 
exercise of this function we neither 
claim infallibility nor grant it to 
others. Luckily in performing it, 
we can rely upon no coercive power 
but must depend upon our ability 
to persuade men's minds. 

In the present battle to preserve 
the freedom of higher education 
we need a consciousness of our own 
resources. There are statesmen 
with us. As Senator Robert A. 
Taft, the magnificent conserva- 
tive put it: "As a member of the 
board pf trustees of a university, 
I would not favor firing anyone 
simply for being a communist un- 
less I was certain he was teaching 
Communism or having some effect 
on the development of the stu- 
dents." There are alumni with us; 
their influence and interest should 
be quickened and organized. When 
discouraged by the conspicuous ti- 
midity and short-sightedness of 
some college presidents, let us re- 
call that there are dozens of un- 
sung administrators fighting off 
the attacks of angry or perplexed 
correspondents and seeking to edu- 
cate them in the true meaning of 
higher education. As a make- 
weight to Sproul of California and 
Allen of Washington, others in 
large or small measure have had 
the courage to defend freedom and 
accused professors: Conant of Har- 
vard, Baxter of Williams, Blanding 
of Vassar, and Taylor of Sarah 
Lawrence. It is no derogation of 
their firmness and wisdom to point 
out that it is professors who at 
hearings from Rutgers to Wash- 
ington have written the reports 
against the 'dismissal of real or 
alleged Communists and who from 
California to Oklahoma have re- 
fused to sign test oaths, putting 
thereby to the hazard their liveli- 
hood and reputation. Mindful of 
such magnificence, we can do no 
less than fight for our freedoms 
as teachers and our rights as 
American citizens. If we are men, 
we can yet write a new chapter 
in the testament of freedom.

WBOA Schedule: May 13-19 

Standing at the end of Whittier 
Street near Pickard Field is the 
College Warehouse, a building not 
familiar to many Bowdoin men.- 

The structure, a one story battle- 
ship gray rectangular building, is 
approximately 75 by 45 feet. Al- 
though the architects of the build- 
ing were McKim, Mead, and White, 
the exterior, completely functional, 
shows none of the features which 
have marked their other works on 
the Bowdoin campus. 

A sign within the building pro- 
claims its purpose. Its approximate 
wording is, "The food in this build- 
ing is for Bowdoin fraternities and 
the Moulton Union, and it is not for 
private sale." The building serves 
as the warehouse for the Central- 
ized Dining Service which purchas- 
es food in quantity from wholesale 
houses. The food then is held at 
the warehouse until it is requisi- 
tioned by one of the fraternities or 
by the Union. The savings in cost 
which result are handed on to the 
various users. 

Three "Reefers M 

On the left as one enters the 
door are the three refrigerators or 
"reefers" as they are called by 
those familiar with them. The re- 
frigerators run three quarters of 
the way from the floor to the ceil- 
ing and are furnished with hooks 
for holding sides of beef and trays 
for smaller cuts. Straight ahead is 
the spacious office where the busi- 
ness of the warehouse is carried 
on. On the right is the storage 
room for dry stocks. 

Following the founding of the 
Centralized Dining Service .the 
College used the cold storage room 
at the Brunswick Naval Air^Sta- 
tion which at that time was inac- 
tive. When the Base was reactivat- 
ed in early 1951, Bowdoin was forc- 
ed to relinquish this space and seek

struction was started in the spring 
of 1951. At its dedication on Sep- 
tember 18, 1951, former President 
Kenneth C. M. Sills declared that 
the warehouse "fills a long stand- 
ing need and will be of great value 
to the College."

Although seldom visited by Bow- 
doin undergraduates, inspection of

Mrs. Coles 

Bowdoin Presidency 

In Sudden Coup D'Etat; Coles Resigns 

Joy, Bewilderment, Surprise 
Meet News Of Lady Prexy 

The reaction to the precedent 
shattering appointment of Mrs. 
James S. Coles to succeed her hus- 
band as President of the College, 
and her proposed importation of 
Vassar College was one of mixed 
joy^ bewilderment, and pessimism. 
Although it would be an under- 
statement to say that the move 
came as a surprise, there was a 
certain anonymous student in the 
Union overheard to remark: "I sus- 
pected this was going to happen all 
along. It's no surprise to me." 

Some other anonymous reactions 
overheard by one of our special 
agents with a tape recorder went 
as follows: "Bring them Vassar 
bims up here? It's a cinch they'll 
freeze to death before next Feb- 
ruary"; "The College is really in for 
it now"; "Girlies, eh? Looks like 
Westbrook'll have to go out of 
business"; and "I doubt that the 
new regime will last long. Maine 
weather has an enervating effect 
on all kinds of reformers." 

Since our agent's tape recorder 
broke down when one unhappy 
student spotted him with it, we 
were forced to send out another re- 
porter to interview people of note 
on campus.

'Real Ding Buster Of 
Party' Says Chairman 
William T. Cowper '54 

"Ivy this year is going to be a 
real -ding buster of a party," said 
William T. Cowper, '54, chairman 
of the Special Committee for Mak- 
ing Ivy a Real Ding Buster. 

"We have added three or four 
extra features to make this week- 
end a real success. For instance, 
not only are we having Elliot Law- 
rence and the Meddiebempsters at 
the dance, we have also obtained 
Cy Benners and his Shirttail 
Stompers to play intermission 
<music." He went on to add that 
such Saturday features as a stu- 
dent-faculty mud pie contest, a 
special air show, and a tumbling 
act will be added to the usual 
activities. ".No one need lack for 
entertainment," Cowper added. 

The participants in the student- 
faculty mud pie contest have not 
been picked yet, and when they 
are, the names will not be released, 
since secrecy is to be one of the 
features of the contest. The con- 
test will be held on the Mall, with 
each participant receiving a bucket 
of mud with which to make mud 

There will be three elimination 
heats before two faculty members 
and two students are left for the 
final run off, each with a fresh 
bucket of mud. The lengths of the 
heats are as yet undetermined. The 
object of the contest is to make 
the most mud pies in an allotted 
period of time. The winner from 
each side will be awarded a huge 
concrete layer cake studded with 
Roman Candles. "There will be no 
mudslinging at this contest," Cow- 
per added. 

Event Of The Year 

The air show will be a special 
event put on by the airbase, and 
will consist mainly of complicated 
formation flying and pet races. 
"The commander of the air base 
ruled out stunt flying as too 
dangerous to all concerned," Cow- 
per said. 

The tumbling act is known in 
theatrical circles as The Flying 
Fanzinis, and has performed with 
such top circuses as Ringling 
Brothers and others of national 
prominence. "This act is really 
sensational," Cowper said. "It 
really ought to pack them in." 
The act will be held in the gym. 
A Great 

Cowper stated that a formal 
dance in the gym should be' one of 
the best ever. "Elliot Lawrence is 
one of the greatest dance bands 
going, and of course the Meddies 
will be there. This Cy Benners out- 
fit is really sensational, but I'd 
like to keep their specialty 
under wraps until Friday night. 
You better get your tickets. It's 
going to be the greatest show go- 
ing for six bucks." 

According to Cowper, the revised 
schedule of events will be as fol- 

Friday. 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 
Classes, girls arriving, and general 

9:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. Formal

training has become proficient in 
the English language. He cannot 
wrije, but will communicate his 
ideas to his master, who will take 
them down, and pass them along to 
the -ORIENT. According to 
O'Duffy, the dog has quite a flair 
for humor, "mostly dry." 

It is expected that Fosdick's col- 
umns will treat mainly with a dog's 
eye view of campus life. 

An offer from the Tallman Foun- 
dation to hire him as guest lecturer 
next year was declined, as Fosdick 
himself put it. "because I have no 
field of specialization."

Revivalist Rocks Chapel 
With Ringing Deluge 
On 'Hell, High Water' 

Evangelist Manny Friday spoke 
in Chapel yesterday in a real old- 
fashioned revival service on the 
topic of Hell with High Water. 

According to our man Friday 
the end of the world would arrive 
this coming weekend and th,at all 
God-a-fearing sinners should, 
cleanse from their hearts all bad 
traits of character. Friday said 
that the beginning would come 
with a renting of the heavens 
which would last for thirty days j 
and thirsty nights without let-up. j 
Having dampened the spirits of the 
undergraduates Friday followed 
"Sunday would be the day to begin 
repenting for all previous sins. For 
if ye do not, thou all shalt perish 
in Hell with High Water. For unto 
ye will be brought that day a 
chance to sink or swim." 

Friday ended his deluge with a 
short appeal to the Sun which 
glistened on the newly hung col- 
lege pennants. 

Instructor Sol of the Underwater 
Demolition Department introduced 
Friday and the choir sang "Wade 
in the Water." 

3 Congressional Investigators To 
Check Subversive Activities Here 

Three representatives of Con- 
gressional investigating commit- 
tees arrived in Brunswick today 
and intend to remain here for sev- 
eral days in order to investigate 
the Bowdoin College faculty and 
students it was announced today by 
Donovan D. Lancaster. 

Harold Himmel Vield, who for 
some reason continues to serve as 
Chairman of the House Un-Ameri- 
can Activities Committee, will pre- 
side when the investigating com- 
mittee begins its sessions on the 
Bowdoin Campus. Vield and two 
other members of the House Com- 
mittee on Un-American Activities 
arrived in Brunswick by special 
limousine. Senator Joseph Mac- 
Cart who was expected to have ac- 
companied Vield and his commit- 
tee, will not arrive until the end of 
the week. At present he is busy in- 
vestigating the staff of Symphony 
Hall and plans to remain in Boston 
until after he has heard the Med- 
diebempsters and the College Glee 
Club sing. 

Soon after his arrival in Bruns- 
wick, Vield told reporters that "we 
have come here to investigate the 
faculty and students of Bowdoin 
College. Vicious rumors have reach- 
ed us that certain subversive and 

Next Tallman Lecturer 

amorous activities are scheduled to 
take place at the College during 
the coming weekend. 

"Subversives are amorous and 
can not possibly be interested in 
truth for truth's sake. Subversives 
(whether teachers or students) can 
not attend classes without trying 
to sell the party line. We should 
exterminate them." 

The investigators have come to 
the College as the result of an in- 
vitation extended to them in April 
by the College administration. The 
Massachusetts Hall has adopted 
the position expressed so articulate- 
ly by Dr. Lewis Webster Jones cf 
Rutgers who said on March 21 "all 
universities (and colleges) should 
open their doors to investigators", 
since "it will be an opportunity to 
show the public what we are like." 

This is just the reason why the 
invitation was extended to the in- 
vestigators at this time. During the 
coming Ivy weekend they will have 
ample opportunity to see just what 
we, and our dates, are like. 
Chandler Says 

James Kenneth Chandler, Vice 
President in Charge* of Student Ac- 
tivities in a special statement to 
the ORIENT declared, "the threat 
of Congressional investigation 
should not be in the least alarming. 
Bowdoin College may indeed be 
proud to have this opportunity to 
get the limelight." 

Dean Nathaniel C. Kendrick has 
requested that all students extend 
every possible courtesy to the Con- 
gressmen. He urged students and 
faculty members not to invoke the 
Fifth Amendment unless absolute- 
ly necessary. 

To The Winds 

Among her ideas for making 
Bowdoin a more pleasant place to 
live, Mrs. Coles announced that she 
is blowing a tradition of one hun- 
dred fifty years, and making the 
school coeducational. "Negotiations 
are under way to import Vassar 
College in its entirety, campus and 
all," she said. Mrs. Coles added 
that Lou Perini had submitted the 
lowest bid, and would begin mov- 
ing Vassar late this month. Al- 

Mrs. James S. Coles 

Bowdoin- Vassar Merge To 
Be 1st Project Of New Head 

In a sensational coup d'etat, or more fittingly perhaps, coup de 
college, Mrs. James S. Coles today seized the Presidency of the College, 
thus becoming the first woman president in Bowdoin history. Mrs. 
Coles, wife of the former President, issued the following statement to 
the press: 

"The Governing Boards last night accepted the resignation of Dr, 
Coles, and appointed me his successor. I shall endeavor to fulfill the 
duties of the office to the best of my ability, and shall attempt to make 
Bowdoin not only a better college, but also a more pleasant place to 

the President, released this state- 
ment: "Of course, H will take a 
little time to integrate our new 
feminine additions to the Bowdoin 
family into the daily routine of col- 
lege life, but we anticipate no dif- 
ficulty in the long run." 
No Stigma 
Mrs. Coles also mentioned that 
she would like to see some change 
in the uniforms used by the ROTC. 
"I want to remove that 'Brown 
Shirt' stigma," she said, "possibly 
by adding more color. I shall con- 
tact Adrian, with, of course, the 
Army's permission." Col. Kennett 
could not be reached for. comment. 
In becoming the first woman 
President in Bowdoin's long and 
colorful history, Mrs. Coles stated 
that she thought the job would be a 
difficult one, but not one beyond 
her powers. "Naturally," she said, 
"I have an awfully long tradition 
to contend with, and it will not be 
an easy task. There will, of course, 
be some changes in the staff, but 
the Faculty will remain essential- 
ly the same." Mrs. Coles declined 
to comment on administrative ar- 
rangements with faculty of Vassar. 

Sources close'to key members of 
the Governing Boards expressed 
bewilderment at Mrs. Coles' prece- 
dent shattering appointment. A 
spokesman who wished to remain 
anonymous stated, "She got enough 
votes, but I don't know how." An- 
other remarked, "It was a very 
sudden thing. We didn't quite know 
what was going on." 

Reliable sources indicate that the 
previous incumbent, Mrs. Coles' 
l husband, will either be appointed 
Assistant to the President of Vas- 
sar, or will be awarded the Jules 
Verne Chair of Underwater Demo- 
lition, in order that he may con- 
tinue his research. Meanwhile, Dr. 
Coles is busying himself minding 
the Coles' children. 

Mrs. Coles will deliver her inau- 
gural address next Sunday in Ban- 
nister Hall.

though she claimed no knowledge 
of the technical matters involved 
in moving a whole college, Mrs. 
Coles said that Mr. Perini had men- 
tioned the use of rollers. She added 
that McKim, Mead, and White, the 
College architects, are working on 
a plan to set the Vassar buildings 
in picturesque spots among the 
Bowdoin Pines.

The Ivy Curtain Author 
Bids Readers Farewell 
As He Looks Forward 

By E. Ward Gilman '53 

As we bid adieu to a long toil- 
some year of baiting the Student 
| Council, the President, the Dean, 
i and the postmen, and we look for- 
: ward to the long and arduous 
journey that lies ahead, the years 
of irksome toil and thankless ser- 
! vice, of smiles and tears, of hopes 
and disappointments, we would 
like to leave these immortal words 
of Alfred Lord Tennyson from his 
justly famous poem, "Crossing the 
Bar,' with our gentle readers. 
1 Sunset and evening star. 
And one clear call for me! 
And may there be no moaning of 
the bar, 

When I put out to sea, 
For tho' from out our borne of 
Time and Place 
The flood may bear me far, 
I hope to see my Pilot face to face 
.When I have crost the bar. 

Our fly-by-night reporter Mr. 
Gunther Podbelian, was on hand in 
Poughkeepsie when the news was 
released, and straightway he pro- 
ceeded to Vassar to sample opin- 
ion. This is his report, cabled from 
| on the spot: 

There is somewhat of an air of 
bewilderment on the Vasspr cam- 
pus today. The prevalent opinion 
seems to be one of guarded opti- 
mism. The President of the Col- 
lege was not on hand for comment, 
but I did manage to corner a few 
members of the Faculty and a num- 
ber of undergraduates. 

Dr. Elizabeth Barrett, Professor 
of English and Rhetoric, had this to 
say: "I am more surprised than 
anything else. But we trust that 
everything will turn out as well as 

Professor Herman Goldwasser 
commented, "I was surprised. I 
guess most of the Faculty was. But 

we trust that everything will turn 
out as well as hoped." 

The opinions of the undergradu- 
ates were more varied. Miss Bev- 
erly Schwank, a Junior from Rye, 
New York, stated, "Maine! Good 

Carmen Impelliteri '54 said. "I 
like pine trees." 

Ruby Gentry '55 had this to say, 
"I like Yale men, myself." 

Since there was no one else avail- 
able to talk to, I proceeded to New 
Haven to see how the lads at Yale 
were taking the blow. President A. 
Whitney Griswold appeared dis- 
gruntled, but had no comment. Wil- 
liam F. Buckley Jr. was extremely 
vituperative. "I'll bet that Kirkland 
had something to do with this," he 

Bennett L. Carmichal '54, the 
only undergraduate I found, was 
waiting for a train and had no 
comment whatsoever.

Grievance Committee's Plan 
Receives Council Approval 1 

The Student Council ratified the 
Alf>ha Delta Phi proposal, which 
would establish three-man griev- 
ance committees in all of the cam- 
pus fraternities, at their meeting 
on Monday, May 18. 
The proposal reads as follows: 
'•Realizing that the question of 
the date and time of fraternity in- 
itiations is a matter with which 
each fraternity is individually con- 
cerned, the Student Council there- 
fore resolves to refrain from taking 
any action on the subject of delay- 
ed initiation. 

"However realizing also that past 
hazing and initiation activities of 
several Bowdoin fraternities have 
interfered with freshmen academic 
activities, and as a result hindered 
the early progress of incoming 
freshmen, the Student Council re- 
solves that: 

1 ) Each of the twelve Bowdoin 
fraternities establish a three-man 
committee — to be known as the 
Fraternity Name Grievance Com- 

2) The members of the commit- 
tees will be appointed by the re- 
spective fraternity executive com- 
mittees, and will serve for a period 
of one College year. 

3) Members of the Committee 
will lie chosen on the basis of out- 
standing qualifications, such as 
sound judgment and high charac- 

4) The Committee will have jur- 
isdiction over the hazing and initia- 
tion activities in each fraternity, 
and will be overruled only by a de- 
cision of the Executive Committee 
< f the fraternity. 

"D Freshmen will direct any 
complaints or grievances concern- 
ing excessive hazing activities to 
this committee, and the committee 
will then consider the case and take 
any action necessary to correct the 

The committee may act to: 

a) prevent the imposition of un- 

reasonable demands upon fresh'* 
men, and 

b) prevent hazing activities 
which interfere with the fresh- 
men's academic work. 

2) The Committee will be re- 
sponsible for answering and ex- 
plaining any questions concerning 

I hazing activities which the College 
j administration may bring before 
jthe fraternity. 

3) The Committee's functions 
are broad and general in a limited 
area — hazing. Specific application

Meddies' Tour To 
Europe Still Doubtful 

The Meddiebempsters are await- 
ing the final decision on their plan 
to tour the U.S. Army camps in 
Europe this summer. 

In 1948, 1949, and 1950, the Med- 
dies made similar trips. The pres- 
ent plans would keep the Meddies 
occupied from July 15 to August 
30. The proposed tour has been 
cleared by the Pentagon and in- 
other channels, and now it is up to 
Major General Davidson to send 
his answer from Europe. He ap- 
proved the last three excursions. 
Friends* Assistance 

The assistance of the many 
friends of Bowdoin in Washington 
was enlisted to move the plans to 
their present stage. Senators Mar- 
garet Chase Smith and Frederick 
G. Payne, Representatives Robert 
Hale and Charles Nelson, Major 
General Frederick G. Irving of 
West Point, and several others, 
have supported the idea. 

The number of glee clubs and 
other college organizations to be 
allowed to tour Europe has been 
drastically cut this year. Special 
services finance such trips, while 
the U.S.O. works out the schedule 
to visit Army camps. 

Quill Reviewer Bridge Terms 
Latest Issue 'One Vast Sorrow 9 

By Joslah F. Bridge '49 

The May issue of the Bowdoin 
Quill, Volume LVII, number three 
and now available at your favor- 
ite tobacconist, is embarked with 
one vast sorrow, sweltering in tir- 
ed lament through its pages. 

With the possible exceptions of 
two stories. "The Hypocrite" by 
William E. Hill, and "Father and 
the Cloth" by Robert Dunlap, the 
theme of most of the prose comes 
through on a shrill, petulant note. 

As for the poetry, the only poem 
with a straight statement behind 
it is "Houseparty" by James 
Anywll. Jr. The rest of the poems 
•re filled with the long cry over 
the passing of something or other 
and are supported in their mourn- 
ing by what turn out to be a num- 
ber of very good rhythms and 

Maturity of Style 

Douglas A. Chalmers, who has a 
story called "Hero with Wilted 
Garland" in this issue, is adult 
enough in his style, but, after not 
too many paragraphs, the adult 
stylo begins to fall on its nose. It 
wilts like the hero's garland into 
the maturity of the don't - give - 
a - good - damn. 

The "hero" of this story is an 
office - hound who has put aside 
his childish rebellions, now that 
college days have passed, and, dur- 
ing the course of an evening with 
his girl, visits the park to hear one 
of the local stumpers. To be fair 
to Chalmers, I think he gets ac- 
ross the idea that the "hero" is 
vaguely dissatisfied with his run- 
of - the - muck existence. But the 
total effect seems to be that, al- 
though it's better to care strongly 
about something, still - what the 
hell; it doesn't pay. 

Regarding maturity, Nietzche 
said somewhere: "Maturity: to re- 
capture as an adult the serious- 
ness which one had as a child at 
play.", which may or may not ap- 
ply to incipient heroes with wilted 

Chalmers, one who is seriously 
concerned with the problem of 
what to believe among the rubble 
heaps of today's global rat-race, 
has also contributed an essay titl- 
ed "The Study of Values". 

Values, Chalmers rightly be- 
lieves, are underrated. The ques- 
tion, "What should we believe?" 
is, according to Chalmers, ignored 
by scholars. Science is the god, 
and science is concerned with fact 
not Good or Bad, but what IS. 

To do this, to tell someone what 
they ought to believe, it is first 
necessary to become objective, 

scientific, says Chalmers, "The 
man who undertakes such a sus- 
tained study must rid himself, in 
large part, of his own values while 
he -is working on the problem." 

Before arriving at this conclu- 
sion, Chalmers has stated the case 
for a scientific approach to moral- 
ity by saying, "Telling a man what 
he should believe in order to gain 
certain fundamental aims, (like 
living in peace) is no more dictat- 
ing, than a geophysicist telling an 
oil company where to drill to find 

Fundamental Style 

The only hitch in the lovely 
scheme is Chalmers' phrase "cer- 
tain fundamental aims". What he 
takes almost for granted, the rest 
of the world might simply ignore. 
'These "certain fundamental alms" 
are what the whole thing is about. 
The problem isn't so much to find 
out where to drill for oil, but to 
find out if you really want the oil. 
or, for that matter, to find out 
just what you want in the first 

In Russia today they want pros- 
perity, sixty-five years of it. In the 
churches, they want god. And in 
the bar-rooms they want love. 
People looking in all the wrong 
corners for what they want. But 
people, being the way they are, 
won't be satisfied or put off by be- 
ing told. You've got to show them. 
In Frost's "Masque of Reason", 
the poet has God say to Job, "I 
need actors, the best I can lay my 
hands on. That's why I picked 

■ -In the final analysis Chalmers 
seems to be asking people to trade 
their freedom of experiment for a 
safe and sane world of robot mor- 
ality. Because, in the first place, 
we're already told, to a large ex- 
tent, what to believe every day of 
our lives. And in the second place, 
most people don't believe it any- 
way. Much more of this sort of 
thing could prove fatal. 

I've treated these two selections 
by Chalmers at length because 
they seem, in part, to come closer 
to the point of what the other 
stories and essays are built around 
— the theme of lost boundaries in 
a muddied world. 

World of Reality 

Speaking of which, we have a 
section of George Packard's novel 
Alba. Although the people in this 
stretch of writing remind you of 
the shiftless wonders who tramp- 
ed through the pages of "The Sun 
Also Rises", Packard is still rea-

Proposed Moulton Union 
Alterations To Improve 
Snack, Fountain Service 

Donovan D. Lancaster '27, the 
Moulton Union Manager, announc- 
ed last Friday that tentative plans 
had been formulated to remodel 
the Union cafeteria. 

To dispel any student fears 
about the remodeling Mr. Lancas- 
ter stated that the proposed plan 
was not caused by the expectancy 
of any increased need for eating 
facilities due to a deferred rushing 
program. He went on to say that 
when the cafeteria was first opened 
it only served meals but that as 
time passed the emphasis has grad- 
ually shifted, by student demand, to 
between meal snacks. This remod- 
eling, therefore, would make it pos- 
sible for the cafeteria staff to serve 
more people more easily and more 
quickly during these rush hours. 
Super Coffee Maker 

Included in the equipment which 
will be added to the grill area is a 
coffee maker that provides the firm- 
est possible coffee that can be 
made. There will also be a refriger- 
ated sandwich machine on the 
counter that makes it possible for 
there to be a large choice of sand- 
wiches provided with great expedi- 
ency. The soda fountain will be 
moved tothe center of the counter 
so its complete utilization may be 
obtained during all times of the 
day. The dish room will be rear- 
ranged and equipped with such 
modern devices as a Disposal and 
a pre-wash sink. All the new equip- 
ment will be of stainless steel to 
allow for the best sanitation dos- 
sible. r 

Emphasis On Beauty 
In all the work done there will 
be a decided emphasis on beauty. 
The grill area will be made more 
attractive by the removal of all ad- 
vertising ani the addition of the 
new equipment. New chairs and 
tables will also be purchased for 
the dining room. The tables, some 
of which will be round, will be 
grouped so as to add an air of in- 
formality to the room. A television 
set for the lounge will complete 
the list of additions to the present 

This remodeling program will be 
financed by the reserve fund of the 
Union. Before the work can start 
on this switch from mass to indi- 
vidual feeding, however, the ap- 
proval of the College Governing 
Boards must be obtained.

New Financial Program To Give 
Student Aid Better Coordination 

Last fall the Committee on Stu- 
dent Aid suggested that the man- 
ner of administering the student 
aid programs of the College with 
respect to loans, scholarships, and 
part-time jobs, be reviewed. The 
Committee hoped that it might be 
possible to improve some current 
practices, and to improve the co- 
ordination between the various 
types of financial aid for under- 
graduates. The recommendations 
of the Committee as a result of 
these studies are being implement- 
ed in the following manner. 

Applications for scholarships will 
be completed in the second semes- 
ter of the year preceding the year 
of award, rather than twice during 
the year of actual award. Awards 
will be determined after second 
semester grades are available to the 
Committee, and will he announced 
some time during the summer. The 
substitution of a single application 
in place of semi annual applica- 
tions reduces the work on the part 
of the student and those serving as 
his references by half. This proce- 
dure also permits scholarship ap- 
plicants to know prior to their re- 
turn to college the amount of 
scholarship aid they can anticipate 
during the academic year.

spondent, John Scott, addressed a 
near-capacity audience on the sub- 
ject of ■ "America's Impact In* Eu- 
rope" last Wednesday, May IS, in 
Smith Auditorium. 

Correspondent Scott, who - has 
lived in Russia and traveled exten- 
sively through the Balkans, the 
middle east, and Asian parts of the 
Russian empire, appeared well 
qualified to express the political 
and economic problems arising 
from western Europe's attempted 
unification. His discussion of these 
problems, animated by pertinent 
references to European history, by 
a thorough understanding of - the 
people's attitude in these European 
countries, and by a dry sense of 
humor, appeared optimistic as far 
as America's position in this unifi- 
cation is concerned, while it did 
point up certain obvious and diffi- 
cult problems. 

Restricting his discussion largely 
to political and economic recon- 
struction in Western Germany, 
Scott stated that much' greater 
progress was taking place here, 
through a variety of political 
operations but more especially 
through the industriousness of the 
people, than in other European 
countries. He said that the strong 
desire for unification in Germany 
was responsible for the great prog- 
ress which has been made since 
1945, and that the German people, 
facing the problem realistically, 
would willingly suffer the; indig-

foreign corre'-inity of foreign troops on their soil 

and the intrusion of foreign gov- 
ernments. They did not appear 
over-anxious, however, to prepare, 
or to be told to prepare, to fight 
the Russians. Scott cited the fact 
that billions had been sent to Rus- 
sia during the last war to fight Ger- 
many, and that the Germans had 
not forgotten this. 
. Of this immediate problem of the 
defense of western Europe, Scott 
stated that the U.S. has failed vir- 
tually to effectively rearm Western 
^Germany. While the west has about 
^2 divisions, with her satellite 
countries, East Germany and her 
satellites have approximately 106 
.divisions, and this ratio of 2 to 3 
is about the same for air strength. 
Why has Western Germany pros- 
pered so remarkably, while other 
countries, England for instance, has 
not been able to do so? Scott stat- 
ed that he did not believe it to be 
due to the degree of socialization, 
but said that the question could, 
perhaps, best be answered by the 
simple statement that "Germans 
seem to like to work harder." The 
German worker seemed more am- 
bitious and efficient, and the trade 
unions in Germany appeared less 
Stringent than in other countries. 
Britain and France have both re- 
ceived more aid than Germany, 
said Scott, and all three spend 
about the same on rearmament.

Issue Reluctantly Omitted 

The Directors of the Bowdoin Publishing Company have 
reluctantly announced that it has been decided to omit the 
Commencement issue of the Orient for this year which would 
have been published on Saturday, June 20, Commencement 

Bespite some difficult financial problems, the Orient had 
been prepared to go ahead with this issue, when it was discov- 
ered that the forced absence of several key personnel in both 
the business and editorial staff would make the publishing of the 
issue difficult. The unusually late Commencement date was 
found to conflict with the opening of the ROTC summer camp 
at Fort Eustis, Virginia. Summer job commitments would have 
kept several other members of the staff from working. 

TD's Receive Marine 
Painting As A Gift 

The Theta Delta Chi fraternity 
was recently presented with a 
painting of the Schooner BOW- 
DOIN by Mrs. Harvey Dow Gibson. 

The painting is the work of Al- 
phonse J. Shelton of Wiscasset, 
Maine, whose marine scenes are 
recognized as being outstanding in 
their perfection. Mr. Shelton ex- 
hibits his work each year in Bos- 

ton and New York. 

The schooner Bowdoin is owned 
and commanded by Donald B. Mac- 
Millan "98. Commander MacMillan 
has made 29 voyages to the Arctic 
as skipper of the Bowdoin. Many 
undergraduates have been with him 
on these voyages. He has devoted 
his entire life to Arctic explora- 
tion work and is well known as 
both an explorer and lecturer. 

The gift of this painting to the 
TD house is another example of 
the interest which the late Harvey 
D. Gibson '02 had in his college. 

To the Editor: 

I read with some alarm your 
editorial of May 13 entitled "Cur- 
rent Trend Could Take Away Bow- 
doin's Individuality, Spirit." You 
seem to resent comparisons be- 
tween Bowdoin and similar institu- 
tions; to resist any changes in 
the present "relaxed situation." 

I wonder, Mr. Editor, if you 
mourn the passing of Phi Chi, the 
S.C.D.C. and outside toilets. I won- 
der if an opposition to comparison 
is prompted by a fear of what 
comparison might reveal, by a de- 
sire to retain the status quo ante 
bellum in spite of changing condi- 
tions in the world and on Ameri- 
can campuses. 

I agree with you when you say 
Bowdoin should not make changes 
simply because similar colleges 
have instituted them. But I agree 
or other reasons. What we should 
examine are the reasons why these 
other colleges instituted changes, 
rather than flippantly disregarding 
them with a cry of "Let's keep 
Bowdoin Bowdoin." 

Surely many of us agree that 
Bowdoin is the college best suited 
to our needs. That we are here is 
ample evidence of this fact. But 
as you yourself admit Bowdoin is 
"far from being a college without 
faults." You say that Bowdoin can 
make the "necessary changes"; 
but how can it if we remain smug- 
ly unaware of the outside world, 
dismiss criticism with a catch, and refuse to mention aloud 
that awful number 61. 

As you say this line-crossing spirit 
is hard to define. But surely what 
we need is an attempt at definition 
rather than a cavalier inclusion of 
all that goes on around this cam- 
pus as part of "tradition." What 
we must ascertain is whether the 
pickle walk contributed to or de- 
tracted from the relaxed atmos- 
phere you prize so highly. We must 
not make the mistake of justifying 
complacency with specious argu- 
ments or pleasant phrases.

To The Editor: 

Chi Psi win delay its initiation 
next fait This decision was reach- 
ed by the fraternity after consider- 
able discussion in its housemeet- 
ings and after a plea to the Stu- 
dent Council for the support of the 
other fraternities on campus. 

Realizing that it is going some- 
what out on a limb, Chi Psi would 
like to clarify its stand on this 
issue. The reasons for delaying 
initiation are simple. Under the 
present system, the few months 
before initiation here at Bowdoin 
are nothing more to a freshman 
than a period of rather uncomfort- 
able hazing which consumes much 
of his valuable time. This produces 
several severe ill-effects, the most 
important of which are apparent in 
the fields of scholarships and 
extra-curricular activities. 

If one of the marks of a good 
fraternity man is his interest in 
his college, then he must at least 
try to be a student, and try to 
participate in the activities of his 
college. Bearing this in mind then, 
the fraternity should lean with the 
college in its effort to help the 
freshman in his first months. 

Chi Psi is not advocating the 
abolition of hazing. It is simply 
trying to alleviate its too much 
concerted demands on the fresh- 
man, so that he may get more of 
a chance to orient himself in his 
first few weeks at Bowdoin.

By David R. 

All ORIENT reporter in 18d4 was 
able to write that "Ivy Day has 
become a staunch tradition." This 
and other colorful Ivy data were 
enough to persuade us to forsake 
our usual ether college news 'col- 
umn and to present in its place a 
panorama of by-gone Ivy's. 

The first Ivy Day ceremony was- 
held on October 26, 1865. The then 
juniors borrowed the idea from an 
earlier Yale tradition. As near as 
we know the pageant was similar 
to today's, for Ivy was planted at 
the Chapei and a wooden spoon 
presented to the "popular man". 
The next several classes forgot the 
iyoung idea and it remained for the 
class of 1875 to renew the cere- 
mony in the spring of 1874. 

The weekend was highlighted 
with more vigorous undertakings in 
the years before the turn of the 
century than those to which we 
are accustomed today. The biggest 
event of the day was an inter-class 
crew raee, with, "friends of the 
class present in large numbers, 
among which the fair sex was 
largely in the majority." The Ivy 
Hop was held at the Town Hall in 
those days, the dates coming from 
"Portland, Bath, and elsewhere." 
After one such weekend a reporter 
stated that Ivy is "one of the most 
pleasant and interesting customs of 
a college course." 

Customary as it was to have a 
date for Ivy, it wasn't transformed 
into a bonafide house party week- 
end until 1911 when "Psi Upsilon 
held a dance and a houseparty." 
At this time the "Psi U string 
quartet provided music for the 

Anderson '55 

ladies and gentlemen who wished 
to dance." The formal dance was 
first held on campus in the gym in 
Memorial Hall. Of this 1912 ball a 
shocked ORIENT could only say 
'there was dancing until daylight.'' 
The greatest Ivy era seems to 
have been in the period between 
the two wars. In a Scott Fitz- 
gerald-like .atmosphere the Bruns- 
wick men found their way around 
prohibition, had dates from all 
, corners of the globe, (Hong Kong 
jto Seattle) and became accustom- 
ed to the music of Bix Beidebecke, 
Fletcher Henderson, and Duke El-

The Brains of the Team 

Teamwork can work miracles. In a football game the man 
who sparks these miracles is the quarterback. He's the man 
who calls the signals. There's a man who calls the signals 
for an Air Force flying team, too! 
They call him an Aircraft Observer. 

D* YOU have what it takes to become an Aircraft Observer? 

It isn't easy. It's tough. You have to be a MAN to qualify 
as an Aircraft Observer. But when you are one, brother, 
you're SOMEBODY! The success or failure of a mission in- 
volving over a million dollars worth of flight equipment 
depends on you. 

As Bombardment Officer, is number one man on a bombing 
run, the man who controls the plane in the target area! 
As Navigation Officer, is the pilot's guiding hand on every 

As Radar Officer, is master of a new science and operator 
of the device that sees beyond human sight! 
As Aircraft Performance Engineer Officer, is the one who 
"keeps the plane flying", the man who knows his plane in- 

side and out, who keeps it fit for the skies and sees that it 
stays there ! 

If YOU can accept a challenge like this, you'll take your 
place beside the best— you'll find your future in the clouds! 

TO BE QUALIFIED you must be single, a citizen, between 19 
and 26H years old, have had at least 2 years of college and 
be in tip top physical shape. If this describes you, then 
YOU, too, can qualify. Today! 

HERE'S WHAT YOU'LL GET! The world's best training. Good 
food and plenty of it. Uniforms, flight clothes, equipment 
Medical and dental care. Free insurance. Flight training in 
Uncle Sam's greatest aircraft. 

AND then, AFTER GRADUATION, you'll win your silver 
wings, and earn more than $5000 a year as an Air Force 
Lieutenant. You'll enjoy an adventurous, exciting career 
with a hand-picked crew of real men. You'll be THE BRAINS 
OF THE TEAM, A TRIPLE THREAT MAN . . . as a Bombard- 
ment Officer, as a Navigation Officer, as a Radar Officer, at 
an Aircraft Performance Engineer.

because they are people who live

Descriptive Scene 
Robert Happ's story, "Walk 
Through the Streets of the City", 
has many good passages of des- 
cription, probably too many, but 
the main trouble seems to be that 
material wavers between a 
"sketch" and a "story". Without 
splitting any loose hairs over 
these two classifications, I will say 
that a story, at its best, has an 
idea behind it. It dramatizes 
something. You get, in, Happ's 
story, the feel of frustration given 
off by Bingo, the clarinet player, 
and you can appreciate how he 
feels about the deserters in his 
company. You also know that the 
other members of the funeral bri- 
gade are pretty cheap. These 
things are well written, and Happ 
makes the clarinetist, standing in 
fury while the rains soak him in 
the graveyard, stick out sharply 
in your mind. The smashed instru- 
ment is a vivid picture because of 
the exact description of the shat- 
tered parts. But, while this to me 
has a good theme, it could have 
have been a better story if Happ 
had come to the point a lot quick- 
er than he did. The early scenes 
help build up an idea of the 
story's background, but, without 
any driving force, they don't be- 
come important until tne end - I 
don't know how you are going to 
get out of this sort of thing. The 
old "Argument", presented at the 
beginning of a play, seems to be 
out of style. But in this- case the 
story is carried alone on the 
strength of the description and 
color alone. It somehow reminds 
you of a photo-print which is still 
in the half developed stage. 

Concerning Anyll's poem, 
"Houseparty", I like it because 
it's direct and to the point. What 
it has to say, it says fast, and with- 
in a minimum of dawdling ima- 
gery. The typography of the poem, 
in this case, is part of the whole 
because the lines form a pattern 
similar to the fox-trot dance step. 
And the dance, with its evasive 
flirtations, is brought into sharp 
focus by this arrangement.

Short Subject 


"Father and the Cloth", are also 
good because they don't linger in 
sentimentality. Hill's story moves 
at a good clip and doesn't lose 
itself when the bribing scene takes 
place. There was a fine opportu- 
nity here for the drunk to say 
something noble, but Hill escaped 
and finished with a realistic cli- 
max. This story, "The Hypocrite" 
slumps only when the two saviours 
are given a heavy build-up in the 
beginning. Dwelling on their ap- 
pearances as is done here, is too 
much like loading the deck. That 
they are hypocrites, or one of them 
is, we suspect from the title. And 
we get it in the story a moment 
later. But the real hero in this 
pack of cards is the drunk, the hy- 
pocrite first class! He starts by 
heckling the believers in the or- 
thodox fashion of all good heretics 
but, before you can say "Vat 69" 
he's shuffled across the street to 

All told, the "hypocrites" seem 
to be scattered all over the lot. 
The two speakers are hypocrites, 
(one: because of his bribery; the 
other: because of his whining lack 
of faith in what he professes) and 
the crowd, represented by the 
drunk, are all hprocrites because 
of their willingness to drop out at 
the first sign of pressure. Cover- 
ing a minimum of space, Hill has 
managed to come up with a simple 
story which has, as we say, uni- 
versal implications. 

Local Color 

Dunlap's "Father and the Cloth" 
is good as local color from the 
storeyard of reminiscence, but the 
natural simplicity of style has, to 
me. a way of flatting in spots. 

The incidents, however, are well 
selected. The father's trick of flip- 
ping tennis balls in opposite direc- 
tions is an important detail be- 
cause it shows the man's inclina- 
tions towards the ornery side of 
life. Also, the finishing detail of 
the father chewing on the ends of 
his glasses whenever the Rever- 
rend's name was mentioned helps 
add to the picture of his character. 
As a story of character and place, 
"Father and the Cloth" is success- 
ful because of the off-hand, but 
explicit, delivery of the narrator. 
Summing Up' 

Summing up this issue of the 
Quill, it seems, in spite of the 
many traces of "fine writing", as 
though the majority of contribu- 
tors were more concerned with be- 
ing clever than with having any- 
thing important to say. 

•As far as "writing out their 
emotions" go, they don't seem to 
do even that. Instead of coming 
out flatly either for or against 
something, they murk around un- 
der the banner of a fake reportage 
which is, in most cases, no more 
objective than the snide heckling 
of the gallery. 

Stamp collecting puts a pre- 
mium on poor printing since a 
Wot. blur, or misprint increases 
the value of a stamp to collectors.

Mm THE QUALITY CONTRAST between Chesterfield and other leading cigarettes is 
a revealing story. Recent chemical analyses give an index of good quality for the 
country's six leading cigarette brands. 

The index of good quality table —a ratio of high sugar to low nicotine - 

shows Chesterfield quality highest 

... 15% higher than its nearest competitor and Chesterfield quality 31% higher than 
the average of the five other leading brands.

effect immediately, means that 
only freshmen and sophomores are 
required to attend cal classes; 
juniors are now exempt. It is to be 
pointed out, however, that any 
member of the present senior class 
who failed to satisfy last year's 
requirement of six semesters must 
continue to attend cal classes until 
the sue semesters are fulfilled.

89 Students Take 
ROTC Summer Courses; 
4 Receive Commissions 

Eighty-nine Bowdoin cadets fin- 
ished their six weeks training pro- 
gram at Fort Eustis, Va., last July 
31. At the ROTC Training Camp 
were 1791 trainees from 68 col- 
leges and universities making up 
eight companies. 

Four Bowdoin men received 
their commissions as second lieu- 
tenants at the close of the camp. 
They were Edward M. Bresett Jr. 
'53, Lawrence M. Boyle '53. Wil- 
liam R. Snelling '53, and John J. 
Donohue Jr. '54. 

The eight companies each cover- 
ed a different phase of the Trans- 
portation Corps duties in the regu- 
lar army for four days before be- 
ing rotated to a different type of 

Actual War Conditions 

For front .line action, the groups 
had bivouac operations on A. P. 
Hill under actual conditions for 
four days in addition to firing the 
M-l and carbine rifles on the thou- 
sand inch and the known distance 
rifle ranges. Also the cadets shot 
fifty caliber machine guns and 
threw grenades. A demonstration 
of bazookas and other heavy firing 
equipment was another part of the 

In the line of water transporta- 
tion, the companies spent four days 
at Fort Story'. Va., engaged in op- 
erating and landing ducks and 
working as stevedores. 

Other parts of the program were 
the practice in railroad operations 
and a motor convoy. The convoy 
route resulted in a 160-mile trip 
from the home base. 

In the field, the men learned 
how to operate lifts and other 
handling equipment for loading 
and unloading vehicles. 

The entire program began June 
20, the day following the Bowdoin 
Commencement Exercises.

Sen. Margaret C. Smith 

Policy In Middle East 
Subject Of Sen. Smith 
AttShurch Convention 

Senator Margaret Chase Smith 
spoke in Memorial Hall Friday 
afternoon to an audience of dele- 
gates at the New England Univer- 
salis! Church Convention held 

Senator Smith was introduced 
by the secretary of the convention. 
Harold I. Goss. The subject of 
Mrs. Smith's talk was "United 
States Foreign Policy toward the 
Middle East." 

The speaker opened her talk by 
describing the trip she took to the 
Middle East several years ago. She 
then gave an historical background 
of the area. She described it as be- 
ing a kind of world's crossroads. 

Oil Resources Present Problem 

She continued her speech by ex- 
plaining the problems which face 
the making ot an adequate foreign 
pohcy toward the Miadie " East. 
Our initial problem lies in the tact 
that Soviet Russia seeks to domin- 
ate that section of the globe be- 
cause of its rich natural resources, 
the foremost of which is oil. Iran. 
Arabia, and the surrounding 
countries produce one-half of the 
wond's suppiy. Although this oil 
isn't essential fo the United States 
it is a vital to the Allies in West- 
ern Europe. And it is important 
that Russia doesn't annex these 
countries as she did Hungary and 

Another problem facing our 
foreign policy makers is the na- 
tionalism which has become very 
intense in the Middle Eastern 
countries in the past few years. 
Mrs. Smith contends that our 
dilemma is "Arc we to advise our 
European allies such as Britian 
and France to. give up their in- 
terests there because those in- 
terests interfere with self govern- 
ment?" Secondly, "How are we to 
defend the Middle East and still 
respect its nationalism?" 
Past Action By U.S. 

Mrs. Smith described the various 
steps that the U.S. has taken to 
further an adequate defense pro- 
gram. We has built air bases on 
the outer perimeter of this area. 
Supplies and financial aid have 
been given to Greece and Turkey. 
Our spokesmen in the U.N. helped 
to stifle internal unrest in the East 
by calling for a settlement of the 
Arab-Jewish controversy. 

The standard of living in this- 
world trouble spot is extremely 
low, as Senator Smith brought out_ 
This state of affairs has been fully 
utilized by the Communists. They 
give free food in exchange for 
political alliance from the peoples 
accepting the food. We counter the 
Communist bread lines by building 
irrigation dams, and developing 
the natural resources of this area. 
American schools and housing pro- 
jects have considerably raised the 
living standard of many Arabian 
and Iranian peoples.

Meddiebempsters' Tour 
Highly Successful; Mav 
Return To Europe In '54 

Nine members of the Meddie- 
bempsters' singing group toured 
Europe this summer, entertaining 
All'ed servicemen. 

The Bowdoin contingent, com- 
posed of William Cale, Frank J. 
Farrington, W. Arthur Grover Jr., 
Allen F. Hetherington Jr.. Robert 
R. Forsberg. H. Davison Osgood 
Jr., Robert F. Hinckley. Terry t>. 
Stenberg and George W. Graham, 
left Westover Air Field on July 16 
and returned to Idlewild Airport 
on September 12. 

The first stop on their schedule 
was at Rhine Airport in Frank- 
fort, Germany, where they receiv- 
ed their briefing. After two per- 
formances at Weisbaden, Ger- 
many, they moved to Paris where 
they spent four days. They sang at 
Oily Field and appeared at the Rue 

Concert at NATO HQ 

After- an engagement at Cher- 
bourg they traveled south to Or- 
leans and Fontainebleau. At Fon- 
tainebleau they sang at NATO 
Headquarters before French. Bel- 
gian, Canadian, British and Amer- 
ican troops. 

Tours was the next stop on their 
itinerary. They sang at several 
Army camps there and journeyed 
down to Bordeaux where they 
staved for a week. They returned 
northward to Verdon by way of a 
two and one-half ton truck and 
apoeared at an RAF base just out- 
side of Verdon. Their European 
tour was concluded with a two- 
week stay in Frankfort where 
they awaited transportation home. 

One performance in which the 
boys really had their work cut 
out for them was at a base north 
of Paris where was games were 
being conducted. It seems they had 
to compete with frequent air raid 
sirens while they were vocalizing. 

The Meddiebempsters, whose 
current schedule includes an ap- 
pearance at the Bowdoin Alumni 
Club in Portland, received the 
greatest ovations for their rendi- 
tions of "Five-foot-Two" and "Co- * 
caine Bill." 

As proof of their tremendous 
success, the Meddiebemsters were 
asked to ret urn' to Europe next

progress has been made in the 

Being Scientifically Built 

Present plans call for a base- 
ment and two floors above the 
ground. In as many practical ways 
as possible, the most effective 
scientific methods are being em- 
ployed. The principal room, a cir- 
cular Glee Club rehearsal room, is 
being so devised that the sound 
will be directed toward the 6tage 
rather than the audience. Further- 
more, walls and ceilings through- 
out the buildings are to be com- 
pletely soundproof and acoustical- 
ly as nearly perfect as possible. 

Well under way now. the ROTC 
armory, measuring about 16 by 50 
feet, is located between Rhodes 
Hall and the Carpenter Shop. The 
main floor is to be used for the 
storage of small arms; the base- 
ment will be used by the Depart- 
ment of Buildings and Grounds. 
Union Drastically Altered 

The cafeteria of the Moulton 
Union has undergone a complete 
alteration for the first time in its 
25-year history. Mr. Donovan D. 
Lancaster, Manager of the Union, 
stated that the $13,000 cost was 
defrayed from depreciation funds. 

The new equipment installed in 
the counter area includes an ice 
cube machine, a new dishwashing 
machine and disposal unit, a hot 
food table, a refrigerated sand- 
wich unit, a new coffee maker, and 
the fountain. All these improve- 
ments have enabled many more 
students to be served at a much- 
faster rate. 

Likewise, numerous new tables 
and chairs have been added. The 
arrangement of the tables was 
undertaken with a view toward in- 

Television Bel Added 

The rest of the Moulton Union 
was not forgotten, for a 21-inch 
Westinghouse television set has 
been installed in the lounge. It was 
the gift of Mr. Harry K. McCann 
'02 of New York City, now an 
overseer emeritus of Bowdoin. 

Other lesser improvements are 
to be found ip all parts of the 
campus. The Searles Science 
Building now has a different color 
— brick red instead of the yellow, 
in keeping with the color design 
of Hubbard Hall. A series of con- 
necting walks from this building 
have also been added. 

The seldom-used west-side doors 
in Hyde Hall have been replaced 
by w'ndows, with the result of a 
net gain of' two bedrooms. More- 
over, the Walker Art Building has 
received a new heating system. 

Whittier Field Changes Begun 

Recently, a start has been made 
in making major improvements in 
the facilities of Whittier Field, 
which will become more noticeable 
at a later date. 

The reconstruction movement 
has hit the oldest of the campus 
buildings — Massachusetts Hall. 
A inception room has been con- 
structed; also, minor improve- 
ments have taken place In the 

Finally, the path from the 
Chapel toward the center of 
Brunswick has at long last been 

5 Foreign Students Matriculate, 
Are New Bowdoin Plan Recipients 

Vice-President Norton, 
Hokanson, Cross Join 
College Administration 

Three changes have rVen made 
in the Administration Department 
of Bowdoin this fall. Bela W. Nor- 
ton has been instated as Vice 
President. Wolcott A. Hokanson 
as Assistant to the Bursar, and 
Robert Cross as Administrative 
Assistant in the Alumni Office and 
the office of the Vice President. 

Mr. Norton has been appointed 
to the newly formed position of 
Vice President. His main duty is to 
strengthen Bowdoin's publicity. He 
graduated summa cum laude from 
Bowdoin in the Class of 1918 and 
received an honorary degree of 
Master of Arts from the college in 
1952. Before coming to Bowdoin 
he was with "Colonial Williams- 
burg'' in Williamsburg. Vs. IT? is 
residing in Topsham with his wife. 
They have a married daughter. 
Bursar Assistant Appointed 

Mr. Hokanson recently joined 
the staff of Glenn R. Mclntire after 
having been business manager of 
the Adclphi College at Garden 
City. N.Y., since April 1952. Prior

The six new foreign students 
admitted to Bowdoin for the 1953- 
54 academic year are: Carsten T. 
Moller, Boris O. Bruzs. Johannes 
C. Vermeulen, Robert van Hoeken, 
Edison F. Xaiver and Jean-Jacques 

^All except Frasch are on the 
Bowdoin Plan, in which the Col- 
lege remits the tuition while a fra- 
ternity provides room and board. 

Impressed By Language Hon- 

Moller, who is from Copenhagen, 
Denmark, graduated from the Ord- 
rig Gymnasium, Kirkeney, Den- 
mark, in June of 1953. The Gym- 
nasium is similar to an American 
high school and junior college com- 
bined. Moller is not only a Bow- 
doin Plan scholar, but also on the 
Fulbright Travel Grant, which 
pays his traveling expenses to a 
from America. He was an exchange 
student in Scotland during the 
1952 summer. When asked what 
language he thought most difficult 
to learn, he replied the English. 
"The vocabulary is so large, and 
the same word has so many differ- 
ent meanings", said Moller. He 
has studied English seven years 
and sneaks it fluently. Moller s 
room and hoard is provided by Psi 
Upsilon fraternity. 

Opturrd By Russians 

Bruzs, a Hyde Hall resident, is 
from Brussels. Belgium. He gradu- 
ated from the Portara Royal 
School in Enniskillen. North Ire- 
land. When asked what he thought 
of freshman hazing, he smiled, 
saying it was odd that everyone 
went around with a sign around his 
neck. Bruzs was bom in Latvia 
and was there when the Russians 
assumed control of the government 
in 1940 and when the Germans in- 

vaded shortly afterwards. Bruzs 
plans to major in chemistry and 
has chosen chemical engineering 
as his life's work. He also has a 
strong Interest in photography. He 
believes he will like Bowdoin very 
much and is grateful to both the 
College and Delta Kappa Epsilon 
fraternity for making it possible 
for him to receive an education 

Jap Pri*on«*r 

Vermuelen is from Rotterdam, 
Holland. During the war he was in 
a Japanese concentration ramp in 
Java, where his father had been a 
school director for the Dutch gov- 
ernment. He was a member of the 
Delft 'Student Aero Club and is 
anxious to pursue aeronautical en- 
gineering upon completion of his 
education. He is living at the Kap- 
PJ* Sigma fraterniiy house, where, 
hei says, he is receiving the best 
treatment possible. 

Van Hoeken is also from Hol- 
land. His room and board have 
been provided by th" Beta Theta Pi 
fraternity. A Fulbright Travel 
Grant student also, lie is anxious to 
sec his first football game. Van 
Hoeken plans to major in econom- 
ics and then go into his father's 
business, which is lumbering. 

Xaiver, who will live at the Sig- 
ma Nu fraternity house, has not 
yet arrived from" Rio de Janeiro, 
Brazil. It is hoi>ed that he will be 
on campus in the next few days. 

Frasch is a State Prpartment 
Scholarship student He lives in 
France and studied at the Ecole 
Normal d'lnstituteurs in Ver- 
sailles, where he received a degree 
in teaching He plans to further 
his education in order to teach m 
either a high school or university.

Dry Rushing Seen Successful 

For the second consecutive year dry rushing was attempted 
at Bowdoin and for the first time it can be called successful. 
Congratulations are due to all twelve fraternities for their ad- 
herence to the gentleman's agreement originally set up by the 
Student Council. It was a strange and to us a refreshing sight 
to walk into a house where the freshmen were being served cokes 
and coffee instead of liquor. 

The fact that most houses seem to be well satisfied with 
their delegations is simple proof that dry rushing worked. 
Rushing expenses were cut considerably under the new system. 
House spirit was unusually high and the competition was as keen 
as ever. And no freshman awoke to find an unwelcome pledge 
pin on his lapel. 

The ORIENT hopes that this year's fine performance will 
set an example to be observed in future years. It is safe to say 
that a majority of the student body, having seen how well the 
system worked this (year, will be in favor of continuing it. 
Eventually there is noNseason why dry rushing cannot become a 
tradition at Bowdoin. 

Welcome To Class Of '57 

The ORIENT extends a warm welcome to the class of 1957 
on its arrival to the Bowdoin campus. Everybody agrees that 
the new freshmen class is one of the most outstanding and 
promising groups in a long time. But the new freshmen would 
be wise not to let this praise go to their heads. They have just 
begun the routine of classwork and other activities. Many will 
fall by the wayside if they are not careful to keep up bo date in 
their studies. As professor Herbert R. Brown said at the Fresh- 
man Smoker the day by day classwork is what really counts 
when hour exams and finals come up. We also want to warn 
the members of the entering class not to spread themselves too 
thin in their extra curricular activities. One or two interests is 
sufficient for the average student. It is well to remember that 
a good job in a couple of activities is much more appreciated 
than a poor job in many. Freshman are probably tired of hear- 
ing this advice over and over again but we are sincere when 
we say it cannot be emphasized enough. 

Mr. Hubert S. Shaw is to be congratulated for the fine job 
he has done. We the upperclassmen have had the opportunity 
to meet the men he has selected and we feel that they are 
worthy of carrying on the Bowdoin tradition. So once again 
we say "hi" and the best of luck to all of you in the class 
of 1957.

Race Difference* Important 

Yet another problem facing us 
is the vast difference in cultural 
backgrounds of the people. We 
cannot expect Arabs, Jews, 
Egyptians, Iranians, to assemble 
and agree on many issues. The 
U.S. itself must be ready to agree 
with these people once they reach 
an agreement on controversial 
issues, added Senator Smith. 

Miss Smith concluded that it 
would take time and understand- 
ing on our part before a satis- 
factory solution to the Middle East 
problem is reached.

The "Polar Bear Five", the Col- 
lege dixieland band, spent the pa*st 
summer playing in Falmouth, 
Mass., on Cape Cod. John Shee- 
han's Restaurant was the name of 
the night club where the band was 
featured. • 

The band began work the 27tf» of 
June and worked through the sum- 
mer until September 5. The hours 
of playing were nightly from nine 
until one o'clock and Saturday and 
Sunday afternoons from two until 
four-thirty. They had Tuesday 
nights free. 

Unlike the Meddiebempsters who 
traveled all summer, the "Polar 
Bear Five" were able to rent a per- 
manent summer home in Fal- 
mouth. Many Bowdoin students 
made special trips to Falmouth to 
see the band, and their patronage 
both at the restaurant and at the 

Improvement Noticed 

Playing every night of the sum- 
mer brought on much improvement 
in the band's music. Not only was 
their repertoire extended, but the 
tunes already old to the band 
sounded better as time went on. 
The band, led by Ward Kennedy 
'55, also includes Brace Young '54 
on clarinet, Wally Harper '55 on 
cornet, Louie Benoit '55 on drums, 
and Bert Lipas '55 on piano. Ken- 
nedy plays trombone in the group. 

The band will play this Saturday 
night at the Psi U house. This will 
be the first of many engagements 
for this year, both here on campus 
and away at other colleges. Al- 
ready several jobs have been lined 
up. Some of these include an en- 
gagement at Colby College in 
Waterville, and two different jobs 
at the Dartmouth Homecoming 
week end at Hanover, N.H. Other 
engagements are tentative at the 
moment. The band hopes to be 
playing in New Haven, Conn., for 
the Harvard-Yale week end this 
year. This, however, is not yet 
definite. The band will also be 
playing here at the Beta House 

Tryouts For Freshmen, 
Sophs In Aehorn Prize 
Competition To Be Held 

Freshmen and sophomores inter- 
ested in competing for the prizes 
of $55 offered for Aehorn Prize De- 
baters should consult with Profes- 
sor Thayer at Sills Hall, Room 116. 

The contest will be held early 
this year as a trial for new men 
(as well as former debaters) who 
wish to be considered for assign- 
ments to the Eastern Intercolle- 
giate Tournament at the Univer- 
sity of Vermont, November 20 and 
21. The topic is the intercollegiate 
question of the year: 

ResolvedPthat the U.S. should 
adopt a policy of Free Trade. 

Trials: October 15, 7:00 p.m., 
1Q0 Sills Hall. 

Finals: November 10, 8:00 p.m., 
Smith Auditorium. 

At the trials each contestant will 
present a tour minute argument on 
some phase of one side of the ques- 
tion. He will' also refute the argu- 
ments of another speaker to whom 
he is assigned at the time. Materi- 
als will be available on the Debat- 
ers' Reserve Shelf of the Library 
Reading Room. 

Men who have not previously re- 
ceived intercollegiate debating as- 
signments will be given their first 
opportunity to qualify at trials on 
October 15, 8:00 p.m., Room 109, 
Sills Hall. The instructions and 
topic are those given above. Trials 
for the Aehorn teams will serve 
the same purpose as the general 
trials. Assignments to the Univer- 
sity of Vermont Tournament will 
be made on November 11.

Chance For TV Appearance 

Several offers were received this 
summer for the band to appear 
some time this fall on the Arthur 
Godfrey Talent Scouts program on 
television. Much auditioning would 
be required in order to make such 
an appearance possible. The ex- 
perience, however, would make the 
trips to New York well worth- 
while. The entire matter is, of 
course, unsettled, and details will 
have to be finished later. 

The band is also contemplating 
doing some recordings this year. A 
record of their music before the 
band is broken up by the gradua- 
tion Of several members would be a 
help in furthering the musical pub- 
licity of the College. The Meddie- 
bempsters and the Glee Club al- 
ready have made some records in 
the past. 

Wokott Hokanson Jr. 
Recently Appointed As 
Assistant To The Bursar 

President James S. Coles late 
last summer announced the ap- 
pointment of Wolcott A Hokanson 
Jr. as Assistant to the Bursar, 
Glenn R Mclntire. 

Mr. Hokanson assumed his duties 
on August 31, after having served 
as business manager at Adelphi 
College since April, 1952. Prior to 
his work at Adelphi, he had been 
administrative assistant to the 
comptroller of Yale University. 

Mr. Hokanson is not a newcom- 
er to the Bowdoin College cam- 
pus, however. He took an acceler- 
ated course here from September, 
1946f*o September, 1948, and grad- 
uated with his class in 1950 with 
Phi Beta Kappa honors. After his 
work at Bowdoin, he did graduate 
work at Harvard University School 
of Business Administration, where 
he received his M.B.A. 

Now Residing In Brunswick 

Mr. Hokanson is married, his 
wife, Frances, having worked at 
the information desk in Dean Ken- 
drick's office during part of his un- 
dergraduate residence at Bowdoin. 
They have two boys, one two years 
old and the other, five weeks. Last 
week end, Mr. Hokanson moved 
his family to Brunswick, where 
they took up residence at Bowdoin 

Mr. Hokanson was born in Som- 
erville, Mass., and received his sec- 
ondary training at Thayer Acad- 
emy. During World War II, he 
was a corporal in the Marine Corps. 
While at Bowdoin, he was a mem- 
ber of the Psi Upsilon Fraternity, 
and he received the distinction of 
being its president during his last 
year here.

Robert M. Hunt '64, ORIENT Sport* Editor 

In spite of criticism throughout the country that the abolition 
of two-platoon football would mark the beginning of the end for col- 
legiate football, the NCAA's new ruling has stood initial tests around 
the country during the past two weekends. 

I>own at Medford last Saturday afternoon Adam Walsh took to 
the field to "play football as it should be played." To all intents and 
Purposes the "new" system was a whopping success as far as Bowdoin 
fans were concerned. For Tufts partisans the final result was not as 
they had expected, but I think they would agree that one-platoon foot- 
ball and the return of the sixty minute man was a welcome change in 
contrast to the padded hordes of the past few seasons. 

The arguments for two-platoon football are as numerous and 
varied as the days of the year. The new ruling bars a player from 
returning to the game during a period in which he has been withdrawn, 
except for the last few minutes of the second and fourth periods. Thus 
says Notre Dame's Frank Leahy "college football has returned to a 
gaslight game." 

One of the arguments Leahy uses to defend his two-platoon game 
is that it permits fewer men to play the game at an intercollegiate 
varsity leveL It must be conceded that this will be true in a number 
o/ instances of big-time college football as is practised in the midwest 
and on the coast In the case of the smaller New England colleges 
where small squads are in the majority the one-platoon system will 
improve the game. In Saturday's game with Tufts every member of 
the Bowdoin team saw action at one time or another. 

Character-building seems to enter the controversy for one reason 
or another. Leahy argues that two-platoon helps the all-around 
athlete who is lemoved from the game learn the lesson of self-sacrifice 
and subordination to the welfare of the group. As an example he sites 
the case of an Ohio State player who was 5 feet 5 inches tall and 
weighed in at 140 pounds soaking wet This lad's job was to kick the 
extra points for his team. Under the new system he will get into the 
game even fewer times than he did before. On the other side of the 
track it is also said that now under the present rules players will have 
to be in the finest physical condition to go the whole route. Also now 
the player who hated the drudgery of defense will have to wade 
through something which he dislikes. Many say that the age of the 
football prima-donna has disappeared. Why should a varsity letter 
be awarded to a player who is in action only half the time? 

Mel Totman, who played for 56 minutes, turned in one of the best 
games he has ever played at Bowdoin scoring two touchdowns and RcVCrCIld J. SiHtlUClSOn 
doing a great job on defense. ' Hf *-* P M 

From the fan's point of \1ew the game seemed just as enjoyable] Ifl6ntlOIlS rftulOUS OKU 
this season as it did last year. Football history proves that a team of 
thirteen or fourteen players well-coached and high-spirited can oc- 
casionally stave off the advantages of superior depth and go on to win. 
The fans now will be able to know who is playing without having their 
noses in a program half the game. Although many say that Joe Fan 
doesn't particularly care who plays as long as there is a good game. I 
think that this supposition is completely wrong. Baseball is a good 
example of this fact. Being able to recognize the players as they come 
to bat and as they make good fielding plays, builds up the excitement 
of a game. People come to see their favorite players in action, not to 
see a bunch of nobodies run around the field.

Shown above is Mel Totman, Bowdoin backfield star, who starred both 
offensively and defensively in the Tufts opener. Scoring two of the 
touchdowns for the Big White, Totman is taking up where he left off 
last year with his sparkling play. 


The Student Council and the 
College Administration wish to 
have It understood that they be- 
lieve the act of vandalism — the 
painting of the Bowdoin Polar 
Bear — was not committed by any 
of the college students In the state 
of Maine, and that no Bowdoin 
student should make any reprisals 
for this unfortunate incident. 

Next week's opponent for Bowdoin, Wesleyan, dropped a 12-7 
decision to Middlobury a traditionally weak team among New England 
small colleges. The Cardinals have always been a tough team to beat 
as far as the Polar Bears are concerned and could repoat last year's 

Bates was thoroughly trounced by the University of Massachusetts 
34-12. Mass State scored four touchdowns in the last period to sew 
up the contest after Bates had held the Redskins even during three 
quarters of the game. Both Maine and Colby also lost during the 
week end. Colby lost to AIC 19-14, while the Black Bears lost to 
powerful University of Rhode Island 13-6. Most lopsided score of the 
week — Maryland 52 Washington and Lee 0. 

In Sunday Chapel Talk 

Mass Action, Group 
Activities Have Their 
Place, Brown States 

Criticism of America by Euro- 
peans provided the topic for Pro- 
fessor Herbert R. Brown's chapel 
talk last Thursday. 

The professor answered frequent 
criticism on the part of Europeans 
regarding the "gregariousness" of 
American students by stating that 
in American colleges, through 
group activity, "lame ducks are 
made to fly, while in foreign uni- 
versities the tendency is for them 
to become lamer and lamer." 
Rdacatioa Individual Enterprise 

While defending the American 
practice of doing flings in groups, 
the professor declared that "edu- 
cation is an intensely individual 
enterprise." lie added, "There is no 
group substitute for long hours of 

solitary reading, individual study 
and reflection. Mass action and 
group relations have their import- 
ant functions in college as well as 
in democratic society, but we must 
never forget that it is often man's 
destiny to be a lorn; ..." 

According to Professor Brown, 
American "materialism" has also 
drawn fire from European quarters. 
He said, "Many of the blasts

The Reverend J. Arthur Samuel- 
son, A.M., S.T.M., pastor of the 
First Parish Church of Brunswick, 
gave the season's first vesper ser- 
mon last Sunday at 5 pjn. 

Reverend Samuelson spoke of 
the importance of our, college 
friendships and their effect upon 
our later lives. The Reverend Mr. 
Samuelson also stated that friend- 
ship, now more than ever before, 
should be of utmost importance in 
the ultra-materialistic modern life. 
Famous Men Cited

Showing surprising speed, 
balance, and power for an opening 
game, the Bowdoin gridiron Polar 
Bears rode rough shod over the 
helpless Tufts' Jumbos at the 
Medford oval 32 to 6. 

Bowdoin scored swiftly with 
two quick touchdowns in the first 
period and then coasted to an easy 
win scoring once again in the 
second quarter and twice in the 
final frame. The' Polar Bears open- 
ed an accurate passing attack with 
J Cosgrove doing the chucking, but 
I after the first two touchdowns 
switched to a concentrated run- 
ning game. 

Bowdoin's first two scores came 
within minutes of each other. Mel 
Totman in a manner reminiscent 
of Columbia's great end Bill 
Swiacki, made a diving catch of 
one of co-captain's Jack Cosgroves ) 
and fell into the end zone. Fred, 
Coukos smashed off right tackle' 
from the three yard line for the 
other first period score. Tot man's 
TD climaxed the end of a 55 yard 
drive which included a 24 yard 
Cosgrove to Coukos pass play, 
three line smashes by sophomore 
Lee Dyer, Coukos, and Totman to 
the thirteen. Steve McCabe re-' 
covered Bill Sawin's fumble on the 
next kickoff to set up the second 
score of the period as five plays 
later Coukos crashed the Tuft's 
forward wall. 

Dyer Smpresalve 

The Polar Bears lost another 
touchdown minutes later when 
Fred Coukos recovered a fumble 
by Brooks Johnson, Jumbo speed 
merchant, on the Tuft's 42. Cos- j 
grove spotted Andy Williamson 
with a pass that carried to the 20, 
but the Polar Bears were set back 
to their own 44 for having an 
illegal receiver downfield. Bowdoin 
got another break in the second 
stanza when Sawin again fumbled 
a punt on the Tufts' 20. Cosgrove 
and Totman carried the ball down 
to the two on four plays, and on 
the third own Dyer plunged over. 
Dyer then converted and Bowdoin 
had a 19-0 lead. | 


marched 63 yards in a dozen plays 
paced by the line plunging of 
Sawin and the passing of convert- 
ed fullback Freddie Gerulskies, 
who was working under the cen- 
ter in the split-T offense. Gerus- 
skies finally crashed over from the 

Hal Anthony brought the Bow- 
doin offense into working condition 
again in the fourth quarter. An- 
thony playing for the first time 
since he was injured in the Tufts 
game a year ago took over where 
he left off. He carried the ball 
twice for 18 yards and two first 
downs. Totman and Cosgrove along 
with Coukos made up the rest of 
the ground with Totman romping 
around the end for his second of 
the day. The whole series of plays 
ate up a total of 45 yards. 
Howe Pulls Surprise 

Ted Howe wound up the scoring 
in the final minutes of play as he 
leaped high in the air to intercept 
a pass by Dick Etelman on the 
Tufts 40. Howe put on an exhibi- 
tion of broken field running that 
brought the fans to their feet and i no record 
a broad grin on the face of Adam 
Walsh. Howe raced -Srross-field 
shaking off would-be tacklers and 
then sped down the far sidelines 
to go all the way. 

Bowdoin's line was sparked by 
veterans Moose Friedlander, Art 
Cecelski, and Gabe Peluso. Sopho- 
mores Steve McCabe in the 'line 
and surprising Lee Dyer in the 
backfield bolstered the Polar 
Bears' attack.

Bowdoin Graduate On 
Supreme Court Given 
An Honorary Degree 

Associate Supreme Court Justice 
Harold H. Burton '09 has received 
an honorary degree, Doctor of Jur- 
isprudence, from the University of 
Toledo at ceremonies there October 
2. The degree was presented to 
Justice Burton by another Bow-

Doctor of Letters degrees from 
Bowdoin, Oberlin, Ohio Wealeyan, 
Kenyon, Boston University and 
Wooster. He has also received hon- 
orary degrees from the University 
of Heidelburg, Western Reserve, 
Wesleyan University and Mt. 

Active At Bowdoin 

At Bowdoin. Justice Burton 
graduated summa cum laude and 
was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. 
In his undergraduate years, he 
edited the ORIENT and the Bugle, 
while participating in varsity foot-

Rev. Percy L Vernon 
Guest Speaker Sunday 
At Bowdoin Chapel 

The Reverend Percy L. Vernon, 
pastor of the Community Church, 
Poland, Maine, was the speaker at 
this week's Sunday Chapel. Besides 
being pastor of the Community 
Church, Dr. Vernon is also a well- 
known radio speaker, and he has 
spoken at Bowdoin's Sunday Cha- 
pel for many years. 

Dr. Vernon's speech concerned 
our capacity of great living. "We 
are," he said, "living In a world of 
tremendous pressures," and he 
then cited fear and anxiety among 
the outcomes of our abnormal pace 
of living. He pointed out that we 
have not been able to keep up 
with our technical progress, and 
that "we are living on margins of 
emotional reserves" and are de- 
finitely "mal-adjusted." He ex- 
plained that no animal in his pro- 
per environment is as neurotic as 
the human being. It is only when 
we change his environment, con- 
tinually frighten or confuse him, 
that he becomes so. 

Dr. Vernon cited three things, 
which we must possess in order to 
fully achieve a capacity of great 
living, outside of this hectic world 
in which we find ourselves. These 
were: the capacity to grow, the 
capacity to stand alone in the 
face of difficulties, and the capa- 
city to change our pattern of liv- 
ing if it proves to be unsatisfac- 

In reference to the first of these, 
he said that we must be "willing 
to accept the pain and struggle 
that goes with growth." In speak- 
ing of our capacity to stand alone, 
he said that the outside world will 
continually be telling us "You 
must!" We must stand against 
this, and do whatever we think is 
right, no matter how difficult it 
may be, he pointed out. The most 
difficult of the three, he said, is 
the capacity to change our way of 
living. The most important thing 
that we owe our God, is to see 
"that the Godlight in us does not 
die", and to do this, we may have 
to change our way of living, not 
only our outward appearance, but 
our inward being as well. 

In conclusion, the choir sang 
"Adoramus Te" by Clement. 

Omissions Regretted 

We regret the omission of the 
names of several freshmen in the 
list of fraternity pledges printed 
last week. Either the source of in- 
formation was insufficient, or the 
reporting faulty. The ORIENT 
apologizes to those whose names 
were omitted.

Dean Kendrick Speaks, 
First Student Council 
Meeting Monday Noon 

Last Monday Dean Kendrick 
spoke briefly to the Student Coun- 
cil on the relationship of the col- 
lege administration to the council. 

The Dean stated that as time 
passed there has been a constant 
growth in student influence on 
matters .of college administration. 
At one time, the Dean continued, 
the Student Councilor's task was 
meraly an honorary position, but 
over the years it has taken on a 
more serious form- Mr. Kendrick 
told the council that it was an 
easier job for the administration 
to run the affairs of the college 
by mandate, but that he believed

the administration.' 

an active Student Council to be an 
excellent thing. 

In a more particular manner the 
Dean mentioned several matters of 
recent occurrence. He reiterated 
his claim that he believed the 
vandalous painting done to the 
Bowdoin Bear was not the work of 
an undergraduate from another 
college and he hoped that no more 
would come of the incident. 

The President, the Dean stat- 
ed, wanted the Council to form an 
opinion as to what college paths 
ought to be next in line for repairs. 
In connection with this he urged 
that since so many of the paths 
were newly paved the students use 
them and not trample on the young 

The subject of excused cuts for 
out-of-state football games was 
brought up, but the Dean affirmed 
the belief of the administration 
that no additional cuts should be 
granted for these games. 

Exit Dean Kendrick 

After the Dean left the meeting 
the Council continued with the 
business of the day. 

It was decided that the Fresh- 
man smoker be held on the day 
immediately before the beginning 
of classes to avoid the confusion 
caused by the fraternity rushing

Traditional College Rules Govern 
Freshmen During Hazing Period 

Nearly every Bowdoin freshman 
is now wearing two articles that 
are completely new to him, a 
pledge pin and his class beany. 
When he doffed the latter he ex- 
changed the royal treatment ac- 
corded him as a prospective pledge 
for the less gratifying experience 
of hazing. 

Hazing, long a college tradi- 
tion, serves a vital purpose in the 
adjustment of the freshman to his 
new environment. It is not, as 
some of the frosh are inclined to 
believe, a licensed excuse to tor- 
ment them, but rather it is an able 
way of developing class spirit and 
awareness of the colorful tradi- 
tion which surrounds the college. 

New Trend 

The trend in hazing today is one 
which de-emphasizes physical pun- 
ishment and which is aimed at 
more constructive activity. Car- 
ried on now by the individual fra- 
ternities, the process hastens the 
learning of college and fraternity 
songs, names, important events in 
the history of the school. Whether 
or not the freshmen realize it, this 
process serves to knit them into a 
strong class and at the same time 
a class which is steeped in the 
aura which distinguishes Bowdoin 
men from all others. 

It is through hazing that the 
freshmen first come in contact 
with Bowdoin customs that are 
continually observed by the under- 
graduate body. 

Perhaps the most important 
of these is the one regulating 
chapel behavior. Freshmen are re- 
quired to remain within the chapel 
until the three upper classes have 
left. Then, and only then, may the 
freshmen leave. Other important 

chapel manners must be acquired 
during this period. The freshman 
is taught now that his appearance 
in chapel should be marked by 
respect and attention. 

The Bowdoin "Hello", which is 
practiced by upperclassmen as 
well as freshmen, should never be 
forgotten, and should be exercised 
to its fujlest extent. This custom 
is in no little way responsible for 
our reputation as a friendly col- 

Changes Made 

In addition to these purposes 
hazing is designed to assist the 
froshman in another important 
way, that of making the transi- 
tion from his high school way of 
life to the more adult-fike society 
of college. 

This end is accomplished almost 
completely through fraternity haz- 
ing. The very brevity of the hazing 
period which first impresses the ' 
the freshman, makes it necesary 
to accomplish this by direct 
means. The freshman who displays 
either a sullen attitude or bad 
manners, or who deems it wise to 
call attention to himself by un- 
gentlemanly conduct soon finds 
that he is in disgrace. He 
learns the hard way, for not 
only is he disgraced, but he is al- 
so punished in a fitting manner. 
By adopting the philosophy that to 
spare the whip is to spoil the child, 
the hazing committees are able to 
assist the freshman in the other- 
wise hard process of fitting into 
his new surroundings. 

Granted that on the face of it. 
hazing may seem unduly blunt, it 
is nevertheless an effective meth- 
od of transforming the inc oming 

freshman into a true Bowdoin 

Alumni Council's New 
Appointments Revealed 

The Alumni Council of Bowdoin, 
an organization without funds and 
without any power other than that 
of suggestion, has become a very 
important part of the college. 

The Alumni Council is credited 
with endorsing, sponsoring and, 
for a time, financing the Place- 
ment Bureau and the expanded 
work in Admissions. The council 
serves somewhat as a go-between 
for the alumni and the college. 

The following committee ap- 
pointments have been made for 
the year 1953-1954. They are as 
follows: Nominations; Messrs. 
Humphrey, Parker and Chalmers. 
Mr. Humphrey has also been ap- 
pointed as Ballot Auditor. Alumni 
Service Award; Messrs. Good, 
Sawyer and DeSuze. Prospective 
Students Committee; Messrs. Nib- 
lock, Mahoney, Small and Hight. 
Placement Committee; Messrs. 
Norton, Gulliver and Sibley. Schol- 
arship Aid Committee; Messrs. El- 
liott, Salter, Mclntyre and Nib- 
lock. Alumni House Committee; 
Messrs. Sawyer, Mclnnis, Willard, 
Quinby and Marsh. 

Alumni Day is October 31, the 
day of the Bates game. At that 
time" further notice regarding 
council meetings will be available. 
Luncheon tickets should be order- 
ed in advance.

Kendrick, Dane To Be 
Delegates At Confab On 
Educational Progress 

Dean Nathaniel C. Kendrick and 
Professor Nathan Dane II will at- 
tend a conference sponsored by 
"The Ford Foundation" at "The 
University Club" in New York 
City, to discuss a student's pro- 
gression in his formal education. 

As it stands now a person must 
go through eight years of grade 
school and four years each of high 
school and college. The question 
is: are these sharply defined peri- 
ods necessary or are they just an 
obsolete standard ? There are good 
reasons for both procedures, and 
there is no definite hint as to the 
answer yet. 

In order to make these periods 
more flexible secondary schools 
must offer courses that upon suc- 
cessful completion will give a stu- 
dent credit in college. Such courses 
would only be offered to students 
who could handle them. 

Dean Kendrick will sit on the 
central committee to discuss the 
question which has been studied by 
twelve colleges for a year now. 

ROTC Unit Receives 
'Duck' For Training 

The first piece of heavy equip- 
ment in the line of transportation, 
an amphibious duck, was added to 
the Bowdoin Reserve Officers 
Training Corps this year. 

The duck was on display here at 
Bowdoin during the arrival and 
registration period of the first 
week of school. 

The duck's capacity is 25 men 
or about one platoon. 

The duck is 43 feet long and has 
a weight of two and one half tons. 
Its purpose at Bowdoin will be for 
the training of cadets in amphibi- 
ous operations. It will be used 
chiefly for the instructions of the 
officers in the advanced course of 

This new addition is the first 
full size vehicle for training, al- 
though the program here has many 
scale models of transportation 
equipment for instructions and a 
nearly complete collection of wea- 
pons for practice.

Holds Informal Discussions 
On 16 Topics Of Interest 

By Thomas L- Speaoe '57 

Forty-five representatives from | for the sertojtf meetings. 
14 New England colleges partici- 
pated in two days of informal dis- 
cussion on 16 topics of general in- 
terest yesterday and today in the 
ninety-sixth annual meeting of the 
Association of Colleges in New 
England, held on the campus with 
President Coles presiding. 

The association itself at no time 
comes to any conclusions, passes 
any resolutions, or has a vote. Its 
main purpose is for the college 
representatives to discuss infor- 
mally such topics as instruction, 
curriculum, finance, scholarships, 
athletics, fraternities, and the like. 
Furthermore, no change of policy 
comes directly from this meeting. 

As there are no officers, not even 
a secretary, the president of the 
host institution is in charge of 
making all necessary arrangements 
for the conference. Fifteen years 
ago the association last met on this 
campus; last year the Bowdoin 
representatives traveled to Yale

Edwin Benjamin Comes 
Back To Campus After 
Two Years In Japan 

Mr. Edwin B. Benjamin, an Al- 
pha Delta Phi and Phi Beta Kap- 
pa in the Class of 1937, has recent- 
ly returned to the College as As- 
sistant Professor in English after 
having spent two years in Japan 
where he taught under a program 
operated by the State Depart-

Edwin B. Benjamin 

After graduating from Bowdoin, 
Mr. Benjamin received his M. A. 
(1938) and Ph. D. (1946) degrees, 
from Harvard. In 1941 and 1942 he 
served as an instructor of English 
at Hamilton College. This was fol-,| 
lowed by four years which he 
spent in the United States Army 
Signal Corps. When he left the Ar- 
my in 1946, he became instructor 
of English at Yale for two years. [

of ways and means to reach the 
1953-54 goal of $100,000. Agents 
who spoke were Judge Arthur 
Chapman '94 of the Old Guard 
(classes through 1903), Scott C. W. 
Simpson '03, Frederic H. Bird '30, 
Carleton S. Connor '36 and Oliver 
F. Emerson II '49. Chairman Wil- 
lard also talked briefly. After a 
question and answer period the 
group adjourned to the home of 
Professor and Mrs. Frederic E. T. 
Tillotson for a more informal dis- 

On Saturday morning the con- 
ferees visited around the campus, 
noting the extensive changes made 
since last June, and gathered at 
10:30 for an "off-the-cuff' talk by 
President Coles. 

President and Mrs. Coles enter- 
tained the Agents and Directors at 
their home at 85 Federal Street 
for luncheon, following which they 
were all guests of the Athletic De- 
partment at the Bowdoin-Wesleyan 
football game at Whittier Field. 

Last year, through the efforts of 
these men, the sum of $88,687.15 
was contributed by better than 
48% of the alumni body. Without 
the Alumni Fund Bowdoin would 
have had to face a deficit of more 
than a half million dollars in the 
past decade. 

Directors present at the meeting 
were George S. Willard '30, George

associations and friendships to be 
sacrificed therefore because of the 
lack of good taste on the part of 
the Amherst athletic department ? 
Besides setting Bowdoin apart 
from other colleges our attempts 
at courtesy seem to set us above 
several colleges . . . 

There is a quality which sets 
Bowdoin apart from many other 
colleges. This quality is just a 
purely human attempt at friendli- 
ness. Individually this quality is 
represented by the Bowdoin "hello" 
and on a larger scale it is repre- 
sented by the administrative poli- 
cies of the college. 

An example of this administra- 
tive "friendliness" can be seen in 
our athletic department. When, 
over the past few seasons, the 
football squads of Amherst, Wes- 
leyan and Williams have played in 
Brunswick the undergraduates of 
these schools have been invited to 
the game as guests of our athletic 
department. This attempt at inter- 
collegiate courtesy has been poorly 
reciprocated by the so called . 
"Little Three." Only Williams I!!?" ***£?* ^^'i' °T

to share the Bowdoin friendliness. 
Amherst and Wesleyan, on the 
other hand, ignored the obvious 
attempt at friendliness of the col- 
lege and even the letters of our 
athletic department. 

This lack of rapport between the 
athletic departments of Bowdoin 
and Wesleyan was one of the main 
reasons for the suspension of foot- 
ball relations between the two in- 
stitutions. The Wesleyan athletic 
department, therefore, sacrificed 
many undergraduate friendships in 
order to increase its football re-

College Administration Praised 
For Newly Paved Campus Walks 

Last spring there appeared in the ORIENT an editorial 
criticising the College administration for its failure, year after 
year, to pave the walks surrounding the Searles Science' Build- 
ing. The editorial pointed out the fact that letting the job go 
means more cost to the College than the actual t paving of the 
paths. Much damage has been done to the grass lining these 
paths due to students walking on it rather than the mud. 

Now at last the walks in question have been paved with 
asphalt. The job was done during the summer months along 
with the usual lawn work. It is heartening to know that the 
Administration did not overlook this job in the face of the great 
amount of construction being done on the new Harvey Dow 
Gibson Hall of Music. • 

The physical appearance and efficiency of a college are 
not always measured in terms of great buildings and impres- 
sive equipment of many types. Often the neatness and hand- 
some looks of seemingly minor aspects of a campus are import- 
ant figures when visitors are forming their opinions. So it is, 
we believe, with the paths and walks of the Bowdoin College 
campus. Clean, dry walks and untrampled grass can be just 
as impressive as a new building. 

We should like to thank the Administration for seeing to it 
that the paths in question have been covered. Next spring when 
the muddy season sets in, the full meaning of the difference be- 
tween dirt and asphalt walks will be felt by students and faculty 
members alike. 

Renovation Of Library Needed; 
Closed Reserve Books Seen Scarce 

Juniors, Free From 'CaV 9 Urged 
To Join Interfraternity Teams 

The new ruling passed last week by the Faculty exempting 
juniors from required physical education was received by 
students with much joy and approval. This is understandable. 
Obviously the "cal" requirement was, to many, a complete 
waste of time, both for students and for those who conducted 
the classes. Many students who showed little interest in varsity 
sports naturally resented having to attend these cal classes 
even during their junior year. Heavy schedules became even 
more crowded when cal was included. 

Now, however, cal is required only of freshmen and 
sophomores. Juniors are free forever from cal attendances. We 
feel that the new rule is both 'fair and wise, for in many colleges 
there is no required athletic program for any class. We there- 
fore endorse wholeheartedly the new cal ruling. 

However, the purpose of this .editorial lies in a deeper 
vein. Although juniors and seniors are now both excused from 
cal, we wish to point out the fact that interfraternity athletics 
must still be thought of. Juniors and seniors are naturally ex- 
pected to carry most of the load in representing their houses on 
the different interfraternity teams. Just because they are free 
from compulsory athletics is no reason why they should give 
up participation in interfraternity sports. On the contrary, the 
added free time afforded by the recent rule change should rep- 
resent an asset to interfraternity athletics. I 

Under this new rule a student whose full schedule made it 
a strain to participate should now be able to contribute some of 
his time/ to representing his fraternity on the athletic held. For 
example, a junior who last year carried six courses plus cal has 
much more free time with only four or five courses and no cal. 
He should try to make use of this free time for interfraternity 


Competition in athletics between the different houses on 
campus will begin sometime this week. We urge that as*many 
students as possibly can try to take part in their own fraternity's 
program. Participation should increase in numbers. Although 
there is no longer ~a "cal credit" incentive for juniors and seniors 
to play interfraternity sports, pride in one's fraternity's athletic 
record should suffice as motive enough.

in the past three years the physical plant at Bowdoin has 
undergone considerable change. The classroom building, later 
named Sills Hall, and the Smith Auditorium were completed' in 
the Fall of 1950. Cleaveland Hall, the new chemistry building 
and one of the finest in the country, was open for inspection at 
the sesquicentennial commencement in 1952. Everyone on 
campus is quite aware of the latest addition, Gibson Hall, which 
is now in the process of construction. Numerous other less 
prominent additions and alterations have been effected over the 
same period. 

There is, however, one building on campus which, accord- 
ing to Bowdoin s high standards, should have been one of the 
first to receive attention but unfortunately has been neglected. 
We are referring to Hubbard Hall, the College library. The 
blame for this oversight does not rest entirely on the administra- 
tion because most of the funds received in the past few years 
have been earmarked for specific projects. But the fact still 
remains that the library is in dire need of more space if it is to 
increase the number of volumes by any marked degree. The 
present lighting system, especially in the study hall, is inade- 
quate. It does not seem beyond the realm of financial possibil- 
ity to have fluorescent lights installed in the near future. The 
study hall facilities are cramped at the present time. More 
space should be made available for this purpose. If conditions 
were improved, students would have more of an incentive to 
use the library for work they might otherwise do in their own 

Another situation which ought to be rectified is the short- 
age of outside reading books at the closed reserve desk. There 
are not too many courses which have regular assignments in 
outside reading yet books are hard to come by in many courses 
which have such requirements. As an example, one course we ■ 
know of. has only eight books fof a class of 60 to 65. It can 
be argued that one should fulfill his requirement in such a course 
well ahead of the deadline and avoid the last minute rush. But 
when a student runs into a heavy schedule of hour exams and 
quizzes he finds such an ideal solution impossible. 

A library is one of the most important factors to be con- 
sidered in judging the scholastic reputation of a college. The 
college with a well equipped library will not only draw a higher 
caliber student but will also attract professors interested in 
carrying on research in their respective fields of scholastic en- 
deavour. The acuteness of the library situation here at Bow- 
doin deserves immediate attention. We sincerely hope that 
something is done in the near future.

Letter To The Editor 

To the Editor: 

As it is with any construction 
work, there are several holes 
around the site of the new Music 
Building, as well as a good deal of 
building material and equipment 
left lying around at night. This 
presents a hazard to any one who 
happens to go over to the Union 
or the Library from a Fraternity 
house on Maine Street at night, 
since he has to go through the Mu- 
sic Building site to get there. 

Since there are no lights to warn 
of the presence of the materials 
and holes, someone .may sooner or 
later trip and hurt himself, as, un- 
fortunately, the Editor himself al- 
most did one night. Therefore it 
seems that the construction com- 
pany should leave at least a few 
kerosene lamps around to show up 
the danger.

Political Forum Chooses 
Fickett Again As Prexy; 
Committees Are Set Up 

At the Political Forum meeting 
last Monday evening William A. 
Fickett '54 was re-elected presi- 
dent for the first semester. Rich- 
ard Dale '54 was named vice-pres- 
ident replacing Peter Z. Bulkely 
'55, the' new member-at-large, and 
John B. Goodrich '55 and David B. 
Starkweather '55 were returned 
for the second terms as secretary 
and treasurer respectively. • ' 

At last week's meeting three 
committees were set up to plan 
the Forum's functions for the com- 
ing year. Goodrich was named 
chairman of the speakers commit- 
tee, Dale was selected as head of 
the documentary films committee 
and Morton L. Price '56 was 
chosen the chairman of the dis- 
cussion committee. 

Films An Experiment 

The idea of having documentary 
films is a new experiment which 
the Forum plans to try out some- 
time in November. It was decided 
at Monday's" meeting to order two 
films from the British Information 
Service in New York. If the stu- 
dents and faculty members react 
favorably to the films more will 
be ordered for future dates. 

The speakers committee has 
planned a program of two speak- 
ers for the month of October. 
President Emeritus Kenneth C. M. 
Sills and Senator Margaret Chase 
Smith have accepted invitations 
for this month: Definite dates 
will be set shortly providing no 
complications arise.

On The House 

Stegophilism has become the 
favorite pastime in several Eng- 
lish universities. From the Greek 
roots "stege," meaning "roof," and 
"philes," or "crazy about," stego- 
philism is the "state of being crazy 
about roofs." 

At Oxford, where roof lovers 
train themselves for future Everest 
attempts by scaling roofs of me- 
morials, towers and other edifices, 
undergraduates have expressed 
their preference for this new sport 
to the American interest in swal- 
lowing live goldfish and panty 

Since roof climbing is strictly 
prohibited by the university's of- 
ficials, students prefer to attempt 
the conquest of these Oxfordian 
summits at night. Favorite heights 
are Martyr's Memorial, • Oxford's 
73- foot les-er peak; the 200-foot 
Radcliffe Camera, the University's 
Matterhorn, and the even higher 
Tom Tower, the school's Everest. 

drinking habits at the undergrad 
level were released recently by the 
Yale Center of Alcoholic Studies. 
The findings gathered from 17,000 
men and women in 27 colleges 
showed that 74</r of the nation's 
college students drink alcoholic 
beverages. About half of these had 
their first drink before they were 
11 years old. 

The survey noted that students 
at "dry" colleges who disobey the 
rules are more' likely to get drunk 
than those at "wet" colleges. The 
report added the encouraging fact, 
however, that the public exagger- 
ates the number of big beer blasts 
and- whisky binges on the nation's 
campuses. In general the report 
pointed to the fact the college 
student knows how to handle his 
liquor. -\ 

Fight Fleraegy Fellows 

A special football supplement in 
the September 26 issue of the 
Brown Daily Herald related-some 
interesting facts about the game as 
it was 75 years ago. An old year 
book account of the first Brown 
freshman game reads like this: "A 
picked freshman team played an 
equal number of men from Philips 
Academy at foot-ball. Andover 
won, the explanation lying partly 
in the fact that they all wore uni- 
forms of stiff canvas, and their 
opponents could no more hold them 
than an eel." The Brown varsity 
took the field in 1878 wearing 
"Flannel shirts, discarded baseball 
suits and knickerboeker trowsera 
in colors varying from brilliant 
scarlet to Canada Gray." A year 
later they added white turban caps 
and brown stockings, but still lost. 
The story is, however, that the 
Brown team "played Pluckily." 

Early Rushing 

From time to time we learn of 
conditions on other campuses 
which are not unlike those at Bow- 
doin. By comparing these things 
it is often possible to gain a better 
idea of the problem at hand. 

Thus we were interested in the 
success of the annual Wesleyan 
rush week. The Middletown col- 
lege is one of the few schools who, 
like Bowdoin, rush during the first 
few days of the fall semester. This 
year 181 men in a class of 197 
affiliated themselves with Wesley- 
an social groups during rushing. 
This was done without any com- 
plaints of illegal practices on the 
part of any fraternity or fresh- 
paen, the chairman of the College

pola* [Polar Bear Power Plays Level Wesleyan, 18-3 


By Robert M. Herat '54, OftlrWT Sports Editor 
Tragedy left its calling card on New England Intercollegiate foot- 
Iball last week as Boston Unrversity's great guard Johnny Pappas, died 
(of injuries sustained in the Syracuse-B. U. game. Pappas had been 
playing ball for the Terriers for three seasons and been outstand- 
ing for the past three seasons. It is saddening to use the death of a 
player as an example of the arguments of those ■who favor two- 
platoon football,, but it will probably be unavoidable for the "I told 
you so boys" and the arm chair quarterbacks around the country. 

In Saturday's game with Wesleyan Bowdoin lost both Hal 
[Anthony and Mel Totman both of whom Adam Walsh had been count- 
fing on to retain the State Series crown. Mel will be out of action 
until the Maine game if not the remainder of the season with a dis- 
located elbow. Anthony whose legs have always; been a question 
I mark is out with a bad sprain. To counteract the thought that these 
I injuries are the result of the new NCAA ruling one has only to be re- 
I minded of the Tufts game a year ago when five Polar Bears were car- 
Iried off the field before the end of the first half. It is also interesting 
to note that there are more deaths from the result of playing foot- 
ball, pro, collegiate, high school or what have you, than there are in 
what might be considered America's most dangerous sport, auto 
racing. It is also true that many do not consider auto racing a sport, 
I a point on which I do not wish to argue. 

Lack of condition certainly did not play a part in Pappas's death 
I for it was pointed out that John never drank or smoked. He was con- 
sidered a candidate for All-New England and All East football honors. 
In connection with football injuries a recent survey was taken by 
[a fellow out in Nebraska on the chances of a player being hurt in a 
football game. The players represented in the survey were high 
school boys, but some interesting facts were worth noting and could 
be applied to college football. , 

The chances of being hurt in a game were figured out to be one 
I in ton. Six of every ten injuries occur in actual games, the remainder 
'in practice scrimmage. Injuries are more numerous in the fifth game 
of the season and 39% are in October. Knee injuries are the most 
numerous, followed in order by leg, ankle, shoulder and arm hurts. 
Three out of every 10 injuries are fractures, two are sprains. More 
than half of every 10 injuries are to backs. Guards suffer the fewest 
injuries. (Pappas was a guard). In the line ends are supposed to 
suffer the most injuries. Three out Of every 10 injuries are in the 
third quarter. Next in order are the second, fourth, and first periods. 
According to this survey, Adam W>lsh and company may be out of 
business come the; third period of the Bates game. All juniors should 
watch out, for according to the report, the greatest number of players 

I are hurt in their second year of football.

Not listed in last week's ORIENT under improvements during the 

I past year was the building of a new Men's Room over at Whittier 

I Field. The present one which is now in use is beyond description. All 

it amounts, to is a beat up wooden shack and a ditch. Perhaps next

In Maine football last weekend Bates beat weak Middlebury 13-0. 

Rob Chumbook led the Bobcat's attack churning off a total of ISO 

I yards in 20 carries for an average of 6 plus yards per try. Adding 

| to his fine running performance Chumbook did the punting honors for 

Bates averaging 38.2 yards per boot. Maine powered out a 13-0 win 

ver an also weak University of Vermont eleven. The Black Bears 

juldn't score until the second half. Dave Wiggin, who is still at 

laine, and Ed Bogdanovich led the Maine running attack. The Coast 

iuard Academy blasted Colby 134) for the Mules second straight de- 

Ifeat. The Cadets never allowed Colby to penetrate beyond their 30 

yard line. The Academy scored a third touchdown in the third period 

| but had it nullified by an offside penalty. 

In other games Williams beat Rochester 14-0 and Amherst took 
care of Union 21-0, for their second straight win. 

Fred Flemming has been selected as one of the Maine All-Stars 

who will oppose the barnstorming major league team to play at the

Faced with the smallest fresh- 
man football squad since the war 
years, Coach Frank Sabasteanski, 
assisted by backfield mentor 
Frank Vecella, is slowly but 
steadily molding the 37-manr group 
into an efficient, hard-fighting 
combine, which will open a four- 
game slate on October 17 against 

Last year's frosh turned in a 
creditable record of 2 and 1, but, 
more important, produced many 
fine players who are now varsity 
performers, three of whom hold 
starting berths. However, the two- 
platoon system was in use, and 
the comparatively large squad, 
numbering close to 50, proved to 
be no small factor in their success- 
ful campaign. 

Despite the abolition of the con- 
troversial two«platoon system by 
the colleges, it is probable that the 
freshmen aggregation win play un- 
der the same rules as in former 
years, as all their opponents are 
prep schools. 

Many Good Players Not Oat 

With only 37 out of approxi- 
mately 215 freshmen now out for 
football, Coach Sabasteanski be- 
lieves that many of the best grid- 
iron players are not even out for 
the team. 

The initial practice was held on 
September 29, so there has not 
been enough time for the coach to 
form anything even remotely Jike 
a first-string lineup. In fact, the 
positions of many of the players 
must be changed, as there are se- 
rious shortages in some positions. 
Quarterbacks in Competition 

Working out of the T-formation, 
the team will be depending a great 
deal on its quarterback. Dick 
Drenzek, Bill Herd, and Dick 
Smith, are vying for this vital 

Hird seems to be the squad's 
outstanding punter, but so far no 
reliable extra-point kicker has 

been found, so it is highly probable 
that pass and running plays will 
be used to pick up the vital 
seventh -point. 

The squad is of average weight; 
however, it seems to 'be none too 
•fast. The fact that' the squad is 
ftWe to practice #or about -an hour 
and a half only three times a week 
is going to -make the first couple 
of games rough on the local 
eleven, as they will be up against 
teams which have- had much more 
time for practicing and, conse- 
quently, are hr better physical con- 

First Scrimmage This Week 

This week the freshmen team is 
having its first scrimmages, from 
which a much clearer picture of 
the squad and Its capabilities is 
sure to come. 

Following is the roster: Charles 
Abbott - fullback or end, John J. 
Alden - end, Dick Armstrong - 
tackle, John Collins - end, Hartley 
Connett - guard, Mike Coster -

or guard, Dick FlCkett-guard, Wer- 
ner Fisher - guard, Dave Ham - 
guard, Logan Hardie - fullback, 
Pete Hastings - halfback, Bill Hird 

- quarterback, Kent Hobbey - half- 
back, George HoWland - halfback. 

Also Al Lanes - end, Bruce Mc- 
Donald - center, Paul McGoldrick

tutions which have had such lib- 
eral scholarship policies. He said, 
"The large universities and state 
colleges outlawed free substitu- 
tion, since they found it too ex- 
pensive. In trying to outdo each 
other and to please the alumni 
with winning teams, they discov- 
ered that the expense of maintain- 
ing a good team was too much. Be- 
sides the tremendous outlay for 
scholarships and allowances for the 
football players themselves, the 
big colleges were forced to hire 
two sets of coaching staffs. As a 
result, to alleviate themselves of 
the financial burden, the directors 
of athletics, who are in charge of 
the athletic budgets, voted last 
spring to ban free substitution." 

The Bowdoin coach went on to 
say that the scoring has been cut 
down considerably. Bowdoin itself 
has averaged 20 plays less per 
game on the offense. This means 
that the team has less opportunity 
to score. This refutes the argu- 
ment that spectators will enjoy 
watching the game more, since ac- 
tually they are seeing fewer plays, 
and so tar this fall they have been 
viewing less scoring than was the 
case in the past few years. On top 
"tf this, the players have become 
tired earlier in the contests be- 
cause they haven't had sufficient 
chance to rest. This also accounts 
for the faet that the point total 
is relatively low. 

Another reason for Walsh's 
stand that free substitution bene- 
fits football is that it gives more 
players an opportunity to see ac 
tion. This fact can't be stressed 
enough. Every college boy who 
goes out for football should be able 
to play if he has some talent. Now 
only the best eleven will play a 
majority of the game, arid the 
stalwarts in reserve will see only 
limited service. The more football 
players who ere permitted to par- 
ticipate, the more boys there are 
who can get the good and the fun 
football affords. 

The calibre of play will be harm- 
ed considerably by the prohibition 
of free substitution, according to 
Walsh. The players will get tired 
quickly and slow down. Substi- 
tutes won't be used indiscrimin- 
ately by the coaches, thus lower- 
ing the efficiency of the football 
team as a whole. Coaches now 
can't tell their boys their mis- 
takes and weaknesses of the oppo- 
sition until half-time, whereas for- 
merly when one platoon was re- 
placed, the coach could inform the 
boys bow to improve their efforts. 
Walsh failed to mention any ad- 
vantages of the new ruling, so it 
may be assumed that he thinks 
the new rule "ought to be abolish- 
ed and free substitution put back 
into effect.

f . *>i .*.;, 

Bowdoin rolled for three touch- 
downs in the third period for an 
18-0 victory over Wesleyan in the 
final meeting of the two teams per- 
haps for many years to come. The 
Cardinals severed football rela- 
tionships with .Bowdoin last year 
due to the fact that the Wesleyan 
athletic department considered the 
trip to Brunswick too long and the 
traveling expenses too high. 

The last game proved to be a 
costly game for the Polar Bears, 
however, as co-captain Mel Totman 
suffered i a dislocated elbow that 
will .bench him for at toast four 
weeks, if not the entire season. Tot- 
man was Bowdoin's outstanding 
all-around star. He was the big 
groundgainer and the only receiver 
Jack Cosgrove could hit all after- 
noon. He was likewise a standout 
on defense. Hal Anthony, plagued 
with injuries all season was also 
taken out of the game with a 
sprained leg and will be out until 
the state series opener with Colby. 
In 'the meantime Coach Adam 
Walsh is grooming sophomore 
standout Lee Dyer and hardhitting 
Ted Howe to take over the half 
back positions. 

Totman was injured in the third 
period but had already contributed 
one touchdown and paved the way 
for another. His score came two 
and a half minutes after the third 
period kickoff on the end of a 73 
yard march. With the ball on the 
Wesleyan 34, Cosgrove flipped to 
Mel on the 13, Totman evaded two 
tacklers and bulled his way over 
the goal line for the score. 

The Polar Bears' second score 
came three minutes later, three 
plays after Fred Coukos had re- 
turned Mike Cohels punt 18 yards 
to the Bowdoin 43. Dyer picked up 
10 yards on two plays, then Coukos 
sliced off left tackle, cut in towards 
the center, and scampered 47 yards 
for six more with Dyer applying 
the key block. 

Coukos scored again in the third 
period seconds before the 15 min- 
ute mark. Totman, Dyer and Cou- 
kos alternated on the 11 plays 
needed to carry the ball the 49 
yards, Ted Howe replacing Tot- 
man long enough to contribute nine 
of those 49. 

Wesleyan had dominated the 
play in the early minutes of the 
game as Jake Congleton, Johnny 
Binswanger and Mike Cohen ear- 

ned the kickoff to the Bowdoin 56. 
The. Polar Bears forced the Cardi- 
nals to punt, but play continued in 
Bowdoin territory with Cohen and 
company bringing the ball down to 
the Bowdoin 15 early in the second 


The Polar Bear forward wall 
held at the 15, however, and Bow- 
doin marched from the 15 to the 
Wesleyan 4 in the only display of 
strength in.the first half. Anthony. 
Cosgrove, Totman arid Coukos 
combined to move the ball 73 yards 
in 6 plays. Coukos almost scored 
when he broke away for 22 yards 
to Bowdoin's 32 only to be grabbed 
by the jersey by Cohen, the last 
man between him and the goal 
line. A Cosgrove to Totman pass 
covered 25 yards, Mel then moved 
■the ball 18 more on an Off tackle 
slant. Bowdoin barely missed a first 
down on the Wesleyan four as the 
drive was halted. 

Wesleyan had two other scoring 
chances, moving to Bowdoin's 18 
on passes from Binswanger to 
Congleton with seconds remaining 
in the second period. In the final 
period Rick Francis hit Frank Sut- 
kowski with a third down heave 
that carried 51 yards to Bowdoin's 
18 where Jack Cosgrove caught 
him and' hauled him down. On the 
next play Cosgrove picked off a 
Wesleyan pass on the goal line 
and returned it 59 yards to the 
Cardinal's 41. Cosgrove had re- 
ceived an assist on the play from 
Atkins who had batted the ball 
away from Sutkowski into Cos- 
grove's hands.

not to be so.

Mr. Lilypad, lured by the offer

Faculty Meeting Holds 
Discussion About Ford 
Foundation College Plan 

Monday evening an informal 
faculty meeting was held in Massa- 
chusetts Hall concerning the Ford 
Foundation program for college 
self studies. 

The committee considering the 
program has not reached a deci- 
sion yet. With Professor Athern P.

tee consists of Professors Albert 
Abrahamson, Herbert R. Brown, 
Alton H. Gustafson, Assistant 
Professor Jeffrey J. Carre, and 
Dean Nathaniel C. Kendrick, ex 

Program's Origin 

The program was set up by the 
Ford Foundation in April, 1951. It 
resulted from the request of sev- 
eral liberal arts colleges for finan- 
cial aid in conducting self apprai- 
sals of their own programs. Re- 
cently $300,000 was appropriated 
for this purpose. Applications are 
now being received by a' commit- 
tee of the Foundation up to Nov- 
ember 1, 1953. The board of di- 
rectors of the fund and the com- 
mittee hope that with financial as- 
sistance the institutions will be 
able to free some faculty members 
for the study. 

Each institution selected will 
carry on its study independently. 
It will be left up to the colleges 
and universities to add students, 
alumni, or trustees to the survey- 
ing body. 

$20,000 Allotment 

A sum up to $20,000 will be al- 
lotted to each participating insti- 
tution. At the conclusion of the 
colleges' studies of themselves, 
they will send a report to the 
Foundation's offices, describing the 
activities of the faculty, the meth- 
ods employed, and the outcome. 
Using these reports as a basis, a 
statement will be published which, 
it is hoped,. will be helpful to liber- 
al arts colleges in general. 

The Program for College Self 
Studies limits the participants to 
liberal arts colleges of independent 
status and those affiliated with

Edwin Benjamin Conies 
Back To Campus After 
Two Years In Japan 

{Continued From Pa ft 2] 
Benjamin taught courses in Eng- 
lish literature and Western 
thought at the University of Kyu- 
shu located in Fukuoka, the sev- 
enth largest city in Japan. When 
questioned regarding the attitude 
of Japanese toward Americans, 
Mr. Benjamin who spent some 
time in Japan during the days of 
the military occupation, noted that 
the very friendly attitude which 
existed toward Americans during 
the occupation has given way to 
a less friendly feeling since the 
signing of the treaty. 

He hastened to add, however, 
that the attitude of Japanese re- 
garding Americans and concerning 
the quartering of American troops 
in Japan cannot easily be sum- 
med up into one general state- 
ment. Though the average Japan- 
ese citizen wants the withdrawal 
of American troops from the 
country, there are many Japanese 
business men who hope that these 
troops will remain. 

Withdrawal of Troops 

Mr. Benjamin believes that re- 
armament of Japan and the with- 
drawal of American troops may be 
useful in improving the gradually 
deteriorating relations with Ja- 
pan. Re-armament could be accom- 
plished readily, because Japan is 
the biggest industrial plant in 
Asia. One handicap in the problem 
of withdrawing American troops 
exists in the fact that many Jap- 
anese who favor withdrawal of 
U. S. troops are pacifists. Leaving 
Japan without American troops or 
troops of her own for protection 
would only open the country to 
possible aggression. 

English Commercial Language 

In discussing Japanese schools, 
Mr. Benjamin noted a e lack of ex- 
tra-curricular activities at the un- 
iversities in contrast to the many 
activities found in American 
schools. The English language, he 
discovered, has become very im- 
portant to the Japanese. It is used 
as the commercial language in a 
large part of Asia. Though the 
Japanese student is interested in 
American technology and scienti- 
fic "know-how", he is not particu- 
larly eager to learn about western 
moral, ethical, and esthetic con- 
cepts. He is, however, a politically 
conscious individual and readily 
expresses his political beliefs in 
street parades, riots, and strikes. 

Though a communist party le- 
gally exists in Japan, it a is small 
and ineffectual. There is no reason 
to fear it nor to fear the Commun- 
ist influence among the young peo- 
ple who distinguish between Rus-

This coincides with the experi-

true when compared to the compli-

to achieve 100% bidding during

combines the tension of a semes-

High Ranking Scholars To 
Be Honored In Exercises 

James Bowdoin Day 
13th Annual; Brountas 
To Be Student Speaker 

Bowdoin College will pay tribute 
to its high ranking scholars in the 
13th annual James Bowdoin Day 
exercises that will be held in Me- 
morial Hall Thursday, Oct. 15, at 
11:00 am. 

The guest speaker will be Dr. 
Theodore Meyer Greene, Professor 
of Philosophy at Yale University. 
Dr. Greene was born in Constanti- 
nople, Turkey, of American par- 
ents. He studied at Amherst, re- 
ceiving an A.B. degree. Among his 
other degrees are a Ph.D. from the 
University of Edinburgh, LL.D. 
from the University of Pittsburgh, 
and D.D. from Amherst. At Yale, 
he has served as Master of Silli- 
man College. 

Author, Editor and Translator 

Dr. Greene has been a member 
of Delta Upsilon, Delta Sigma Rho, 
and Phi Beta Kappa, as well as 
many other literary and education-

al organizations. He has edited and 
translated many of i Immanuel 
Kant's works, and is the author of 
"The Arts and the Art of Criti- 
cism." *4 

After Dr. Greene delivers his ad- 
dress, "Our Liberal Tradition". 
President Coles will announce the 
awards, presenting the eighty-one 
James Bowdoin Scholars. He will 
also award the General Philoon 
Trophy and the James Bowdoin 
Cup. Paul P. Brountas '54 will be 
the student speaker. 

James Bowdoin Scholarships 

The James Bowdoin Scholarships 
were established in 1941 to accord 
recognition to those undergradu- 
ates who distinguish themselves by 
excellence in scholarship. They 
carry no stipend and are awarded 
to undergraduates in recognition 
of a high average in courses to

Frosh Study Program 
To Be Held In Smith Aud. 
To Discuss Problems 

A freshman study program will 
be held in Smith Auditorium 
Thursday October 15 from seven 
to eight. Dean Kendrick, cooper- 
ating with Dr. David R. Russell, 
who is in charge of the program, 
urge all Freshmen to attend. 

Meetings to Discuss Problems 

The purpose of the study meet- 
ing is to hear and discuss any 
problems which Freshmen have 
concerning study procedure, fra- 
ternity life, and college adjust- 
ment in general. 

Dr. Russell, head of the Student 
Counseling Service has felt for a 
number of years that Freshmen 
start off their academic careers 
much too slowly at Bowdoin. Of 
course, as Dean Kendrick said. 
Freshmen can be shown how to 
study, but there is no substitute 
for hard work. However, if the 
hard work is not directed in the 
right way. a Freshman's marks 
might not present a true picture 
as to how hard he is working. 

Dr. Russell will explain how a 
Freshman should budget his time, 
organize his work, and how to go 
about concentrating on his work, 
while doing it. 

In the past, a meeting similar to 
this has been held at a later date. 
Dr. Russell, however, believes that 
it is more important to have the 
meeting now, so Freshmen will be 
able to combat such problems as 
studying for hour examinations, 
semester examinations, and writ- 
ing term papers before^they arise. 
.More Meetings Possible 

If the meeting is successful and 
the Freshmen feel that they would 
like to have more of a similar na- 
ture, others could be held, either 
with the whole delegation, or in- 
dividual fraternity sessions. Both 
Dean Kendrick and Dr. Russell be- 
lieve that it will be an hour well 
spent for all Freshmen, whether 
they feel they need to be instruct- 
ed in study habits or not. 

Hubert S. Shaw, Vice 
President Norton Talk 
In New Hampshire 

Last Wednesday, October 7, Mr. 
Hubert S. Shaw and Vice-Pres- 
ident Bela W. Norton drove over 
to the New England Inn in Inter- 
vale, N. H., to attend the Fall 
meeting of the New Hampshire 
Bowdoin Club. 

Mr. Norton said that about 
twenty-five graduates attended 
the meeting. Both Mr. Norton and 
Mr. Shaw gave talks concerning 
their respective positions at the 
College. Mr. Shaw also discussed 
the Class of 1957 and the opening 
of the College for the Fall Semes- 
ter. During the business meeting, 
Mr. C. W. Simpson '03 disclosed 
that the Spring meeting will be 
held in Portsmouth. 

The President and Alumni Coun- 
cil Member of the New Hampshire 
Club are Mr. George T. Davidson, 
Jr. '38 and Mr. Ezra P. Rounds '20. 

Amendment To Student 
Judiciary Constitution 
Is Recently Approved 

The effect of a recently passed 
amendment to the constitution of 
the Student Judiciary Board will 
be to require that, of the five mem- 
bers of the board, two will be 
juniors elected for two years and 
one a senior, to serve for one year. 

This amendment was designed to 
preserve the continuity necessary 
for the success of the Board. The 
amendment was voted on and ac- 
cepted by the Student Council, the 
only body that can make such 
changes in the Board's constitu- 

Those serving on the board this 
year are Seniors Paul P. Brountas, 
Barrett C. Nichols Jr., and Roder- 
ick M. Simpson, and Juniors Philip 
S. Day and Dennis W. King. 

A nominating committee com- 
posed of three fraternity presidents 
appointed by the Student Council 
President chose ten candidates of 
which the five mentioned were 
elected by the Council. 

The Student Judiciary Board 
handles cases referred to it by the 
administration of the College. 
These cases usually pertain to stu- 
dent misdemeanors in the dormi- 
tories, fraternity houses, or in 
town. Cases are brought to the 
attention of the Dean, who may 
refer them to the Board which 
then has primary jurisdiction. 

The Board has the power to 
place a student on probation and a 
fraternity on social probation. It 
can deal with disputes between 
fraternities brought to its atten- 
tion by the executive committee of 
any of the houses involved.

President James S. Coles is shown here with Nathan M. Pusey, Harvard's new president. Pusey was 
chosen last June to succeed Dr. James B. Conant upon his appointment as United States High Commis- 
sioner for Germany. President Pusey was one of the forty-five representatives from fourteen New Eng- 
land colleges at the ninety-sixth annual meeting of the Association of New England Colleges which was 
held at Bowdoin last week. The conference discussed topics of general interest to the co.lleges concerned. 

Harvard's Pusey Among Visitors 
At College Association Conference 

Harvard's new president, Na- 
than M. Pusey, was one of the 
many distinguished representatives 
to the ninety-sixth annual meeting 
of the Association of Colleges in 
New England held Tuesday, Oct. 6, 
and Wednesday, Oct. 7, here at 

Appointed to his present posi- 
tion June 1, 1953 by the Harvard 
Corporation, President Pusey has 
been described "as a student of the 
problem of general education 'es- 
pecially active in the movement to 
revitalize the teaching of the hu- 
manities in liberal arts education'." 
As former president of Lawrence 
College in Appleton, Wis., he intro- 
duced a course to acquaint all 
first-year students with major 
fields of learning. The fields in- 
cluded the social sciences, philo- 
sophy, religion, the natural sci- 
ences and the arts. 

Greek History Scholar 

President Pusey received his 
Bachelor of Arts degree. Magna 
Cum Laude, from Harvard in 1928. 
After he received his Master of 
Arts in 1932, he won a fellowship 
to stut'y ancient history in Greece. 
Dr. Pusey wrote his Ph.D. thesis 
on Athenian law and received his 
degree from Harvard in 1937. 

While studying at Harvard, 
President Pusey started his teach- 
ing career as a part-time assistant 
in history. He later taught at 
Scripps College in Claremont, Cal., 
as an assistant professor of his- 
tory and literature. Dr. Pusey was 
also assistant professor of classics 
at Wesleyan University. He was 
instrumental in. developing new 
liberal arts courses for freshmen 

Dean Kendrick Gives Speech On 
Student Government In Chapel 

Speaking in Chapel last Friday. 
Dean Nathaniel C. Kendrick spoke 
on the topic of "Student Govern- 
ment", a subject of discussion 
mentioned at a conference on 
"The Student's Progression in His 
Formal Education" held in New 
York last week. 

In the course of the speech Dean 
Kendrick said. "Former President 
Hyde once listed what he con- 
sidered the essentials of a good 
college. Among these he speci- 

4 A body of students suffici- 
ently large to include varied 
types, tastes, classes and inter- 
ests; yet no larger than is con- 
sistent with high standards, 
thorough work, and individual 

Another essential he described 

'Social arid moral respon- 
sibility developed through large 
liberty; supported by intimate 
influence at critical points; and 
backed by rigorous exclusion of 
the few who are deliberately 
injurious to the character of 
the others and the reputation 
of all.' " 

Freshman Receptions 
Held; Mesdames Wilder 
Jeppesen, Root Receive 

The annual Faculty and Fresh- 
map reception was held Sunday 
and Monday nights at 9:30 pjn. 
It was arranged to better acquaint 
the Freshmen with the faculty and 
their wives. 

The hostesses were Mrs. Wilder, 
Mrs. Jeppesen and Mrs. Root. 'The 
hospitality committee, headed by 
Mrs. Kenneth J. Boyer, consisted 
of Mrs. Philip S. Wilder. Mrs. Wil- 
liam C. Root. Mrs. Myron A. Jep- 
pesen, Mrs. Daniel F. Hanley. Mrs. 
Laurence S. Hall, Mrs. Walter M. 
Solmitz, Mrs. James A. Storer, 
Mrs. Joseph B. Miller and Miss 
Jacqueline Antil. 

He then described the one 
necessity for an efficient student 
government body. He said 
"Though student government is 
not a 'right' in terms of the char- 
ter and by-laws of the college, it 
could well be argued that it rests 
on a deeper sanction: that it is 
the inherent obligation of the col- 
lege to foster and encourage stu- 
dent government since the col- 
lege is an institution whose mis- 
sion is to prepare men morally 
and intellectually for responsibil- 
ity as citizens in a free sooiety. 
It does no good to give them in- 
tellectual preparation with prepa- 
ration for the assumption of so- 
cial responsibility." 

The Dean then described several 
of the more "concrete" forms of 
student self-government that are 
obvious around the campus. He 
mentioned the dormitory proc- 
tors, the Student Council and its 
related bodies such as the Judici- 
ary Committee, the Union Com- 
mittee, which have representa- 
tives in them presenting the in- 
terests of the fraternities and 
other campus organizations. 

But if these bodies don't have 
the cooperation of the administra- 
tion and themselves are not func- 
tioning vigorously then the col- 
lege isn't fulfilling its mission. 
". . , if these bodies do not them- 
selves demonstrate a real sense 
of responsibility for the basic in- 
terests of the college . . ., the 
college again is not functioning 
properly and the elements in the 
college who are formally and 
legally responsible must inevitably 
limit and narrow the field of stu- 
dent government."

During the second World War he 
taught physics courses for the 
Naval V-5 program at the Connect- 
icut college. 

Honorary Degrees 

President Pusey has been con- 
ferred with honorary Doctor of 
Laws degrees at Wesleyan in 1944 
and Ripon College in 1945. He re- 
ceived an honorary Doctor of Hu-

Clemens Heusch Tours 
ILS. With Albach '53; 
Plans New Bowdoin Club 

Two foreign students, Clemens 
Heusch (A.T.O.) and Hurst Al- 
bach (D.K.E.), both of whom grad- 
uated from Bowdoin last June, are 
making plans to formulate a Con- 
tinental Bowdoin Club to repre- 
sent the growing number of alumni 
who reside in Europe. 

Heusch; a Bowdoin Plan student 
from Germany went on a 23,000 
mile hitch hiking tour throughout 
America during the summer of 
1952. Accepting rides in more than 
250 cars, he saw 42 states and 
three Canadian provinces, not to 
forget a corner of Mexico. For the 
first of his two trips across the 
continent, he was accompanied by 
Tony Cornwell, a foreign student 
from the Psi Upsilon House. 
Destination Unkown 

When the two adventurers began 
their extensive odyssey by stick- 
ing a Bowdoin sign to their suit- 
cases, they had no planned destin- 
ations in mind. One thing, how- 
ever, they did know. As Clemens 
put it: "We were going to see 
America the way she is, and we 
would shake hands and rub elbows 
with all kinds of Americans' — at 
home, not in an official manner. We 
had lived together with college 
students; we had studied the 
'American way'; we wanted to see 

Throughout their travels in all 
parts of America, Heusch met 
scores of people whom he remem- 
bers with interest. Two people he 
recalls particularly are the lady 
farmer in Texas who knew more 
about good and bad beor than 
most Germans, and the hotelier in 
Alabama, who after giving him a 
lift, said that he had been held up 
by a hitchhiker only a few 
fore. His longest ride covered half 
wav across the country, from Port- 
land, Maine, well into Kansas, a 
distance of some 1650 miles. 

The first part of his foray led 
from Boston through New York 
and the Nothern Middle West 
to the grand Cordilleras of the 
Wyoming and Montana, followed 
by Washington, with its outstand- 
ing national parks and what was 
to Heusch the pearl of American 
landscapes, Pudget Sound. 

Impressed by California 

But even more impressive was 
his throe-week whirlwind tour of 
the varied wonders of California, 
from the arid lava beds in the 
North to Death Valley in the

speak at the Rotary Club in Phoe-

Strong Bowdoin Group 
Travels To Amherst 
For Game And Parties 

By Franklin G. Davis '54 

About one hundred of Bowdoin's 
sturdiest undergraduates made the 
long journey to Amherst for the 
football game, the Smith and Mt. 
Holyoke girls, and a chance to ca- 
vort on, another v campus. 

Alumni (both recent and other- 
wise) helped to fill up the Bow- 
doin side of the field and made 
quite the opposite of the small 
quiet group that was expected. 

After the game, the visitors 
from Maine were disappointed to 
find that Amherst has a rule which 
prohibits house cocktail parties 
except on special weekends. But 
many joined in on small private 
gatherings which were good but 
didn't seem tp liveup to the Bow- 
doin standards of a football week- 
end, especially a weekend with so 
many lovely dates present. 
Bowdoin Man Entertains 

James Anwyll, '55, entertained 
about thirty of his A.D. brethren 
and their dates at a cocktail party 
as his home in Holyoke. Some say 
they think that fishhouse punch 
was served; others say they really 
can't remember what it was; 
everyone agrees it was good. 

Meanwhile, back on the campus, 
the places to be were the Deke 
house and the Alpha Delt house. 
The Amherst jazz band, the Delta 
Five, entertained at the Kappa 
Theta house. Also, good parties 
were had at the Psi U, Chi Psi, 
Theta Delt. and D. U. Houses. Beer 
was served at every turn, and 
jukebox dancing was popular until 
the houses closed at one o'clock. 

The drive back to Brunswick on 
Sunday was one of the memorable 
occasions of the trip. The autumn 
foliage was extremely beautiful, j 
There were applestands all along' 
the roadside, and everyone ate' 
their share of the fruit. The stands 
featuring "All the cider you can i 
drink for 10 cents" may have 
caused a few stomach aches, but 
it was well worth it. I

Chimer Holmes Has Difficult Job 

Play By Don Carlo To 
Open Dramatic Season 
On November 16, 17 

Casting has been nearly com- 
pleted and rehearsals will com- 
mence for the play by Don Carlo, 
'51, with which the Masque and 
Gown opens its season on Novem- 
ber 16th and 17th. 

The play will be produced 
arena style in the Moulton Union 
as have two previous trial plays. 
It is a full length play in two 
acts dealing with a widow in 
charge of a Town Farm in Con- 
necticut, who is attempting to run 
the farm by herself after her hus- 
band's death. The town authori- 
ties consider putting a young 
couple into her place, who will 
introduce modern, efficient meth- 
ods, and the basic theme of the ' 
play deals with her desire to do 
what is best for the old folks. It 
is written as a warm comedy of 
character with amusing types and 

The author, who won the One- 
Act Play Contest in 1951, with his 
play "The Others," a dramatiza- 
tion of a story by Edith Wharton, 
went from Eowdoin to the Uni- 
versity of Texas for graduate 
work in play-writing, 'In? play 
now being produced won him a 
masters degree trom Texas last 
June, and this will be its initial 
performance. Mr. Carlo was 
totally blinded in World War Two 
before coming to Bowdoin, but 
directed as well as writing plays 
while here. His original one- act, 
"The Lift," was produced in the 
1950 contest, and another original 
play, "They Came," competed 
with, "The Others," in 1951. 

The two earlier tryout plays 
have been done arena style in the 
Union were; "Beware The Brave," 
by Vergason. '39. in 1948. end.

In his report as Treasurer, Ro- 
land E. Clark pointed out the im- 
portance of donations to the Alum- 
ni Fund from the over 7,000 Bow- 
doin alumni. Describing these as 
"of real financial assistance to the 
College," he added: 

' "I am particularly anxious to 
call attention to the fact that if it 
were not for the amounts raised by 
the Alumni Fund from year to 
year the College would have oper- 
ated at a deficit each of the last 10 
years except 1950-1951. This sig- 
nificant fact should indicate to all 
connected with the College that 
the activities and good work of the 
Directors of the Alumni Fund year 
after year and the generosity of 
the Alumni are of invaluable help 
in the financial operation of the 

77 Thousand Awarded 

For scholarships and prizes, 
$77,226.86 were awarded during the 
past year. 

Furthermore, Mr. Clark's sum- 
mary shows that during the ten 
years of operation through June 
30, 1953, the income and expenses 
of the College, exclusive of schol- 
arships, prizes, etc., show a net 
surplus of $24,921.96. The opera- 
tions of the College during the fis- 
cal year 1952-1953, covered by the 
Report, show an operating deficit 
of $68,527.13, as compared with an 
estimated deficit, when the budget 
for the year was approved by the 
Governing Boards, of $88,673. 

Prospective Deficit of $71,761 

The Treasurer's Report also 
shows an estimated prospective de- 
ficit of $71,761, about $17,000 less 
than last year's prospective deficit, 
for the current fiscal year, ending 
June 30, 1954.

Each afternoon at precisely 
3:45 the college community and 
the people of Brunswick set their 
watches as the first notes of the 
daily concert issue forth from the 
chapel For the next fif- 
teen minutes they hear boom 
forth from the bells a selection of 
numbers ranging from Brahms' 
"Lullaby" to "Buttons and Bows" 
and frcm "Bowdoin Beata" to 

The ringing of the chapel bells 
is a tradition at Bowdoin which 
dates back to 1924, when they were 
given to the college by William M. 
Payson '74. In addittion to ringing 
the daily call to chapel, the bells 
sound off each afternoon with the 
aforesaid concert which is actively 
enjoyed by some, passively tolerat- 
ed by others, ignored by still 
others, and an annoyance to a few. 
In spite of the prominent part they

however, a fow Bowdoin students 
know much about them. There is 
little recorded history of the 
chimes, other than the fact that 
Mr. Payson gave them in 1924, 
which is noted in the catalogue 
and one issue of the Alumnus.

Other than a snort article in the 
1940 issue of the alumni magazine 
there is no record of the bells in 
the archives of the college. Even 
the 1924 volumn of the Orient paid 
no heed to their arrival. 

Hunched ChVne Ringer 

On the second floor of the south 
tower of the chapel there is a 
small, dark, damp, mold-infested 
room some four feet square. This 
is the headquarters of the chime 
ringer, who hunches over an oak 
pedestal, from which protrude 
eleven wooden levers roughly 
shaped to fit the hand. These com- 
pose the keyboard; by pressing 
down hard on them, a seres of 
dowels, chains, and pulleys are set 
in operation which finally release 
hammers striking the appropriate 

The chimes themselves can be 
seen only by climbing a series of 
flimsey wooden ladders to the top 
of the tower. There are eleven 
chimes which compose the octave 
of the key of G major p'us A, F. 
and C sharp. The largest is ap- 
proximately three feet high and 
three feet wide at the base, and

Pres. James S. Coles 
Attends Meeting Of 
Council On Education 

President James S. Coles was 
one of the comparatively few New 
England College Presidents to at- 
tend the 36th annual meeting of 
the Americal Council on Education 
at the Hotel Statler in Washing- 
ton, D.C. last week. 

The meeting was split up into 
several sections, each of which met 
separately on Thursday afternoon 
and Friday morning to discuss an 
important issue. Among other 
things, the sections heard speeches 
on congressional investigations, 
college teachers, the future of 
higher education, and world under- 
standing in education. Mr. Coles 
attended Section 1, which was con- 
cerned with "The Future Pattern 
of Higher Education." 

Eisenhower Welcome 

The meeting officially opened on 
Thursday morning with greetings 
from President Dwight D. Eisen- 
hower. After this, there were 
speeches by Margaret Clapp, Pres- 
ident of Wellesley College, and 
Harold C. Hunt, Professor at the 
Harvard Graduate School of Edu- 
cation, on the major problems in 
higher education and in the 
schools. The sections met in the 

In Section 1, Dr. Ronald B. 
Thompson, Registrar of Ohio State 
1 University, spoke on the fast- 
growing college age population in 
this country. He pointed out the 
fact that in a few years most 
states will be faced with not only 
twice as many college-age people 
as today, but also with a larger 
percentage of those who are of 
college age entering college. Of 
course, this is because of the tre- 
mendous birthrate of the 1940s, 
and Dr. Thompson said that col- 
leges must make plans now if they 
are to be ready for the increase of 
students and the rising coats of 

Conant's Views Given 

Another one of the better 
speeches, in Mr. Coles' opinion, wai 
by Francis Keppel, Dean of the 
Harvard Graduate School of Edu- 
cation. Dean Keppel presented the 
views of Dr. James B. Conant, 
former Harvard President, on "De- 
sirable future developments in 
higher education." Dr. Conant ar- 
gues strongly for the American 
comprehensive high school, since 
it more nearly provides education 
for all than the British Public 
School does. 

All in all, even though no start- 
ling conclusions were arrived at, 
many vital issues were discussed 
at length and. according to Presi- 
dent Coles, "A good time was had 
by alL"

Moonlight Not Enough 

How long should things be left to chance? Wouldn't it 
be wise to take some precautions? These are the questions 
being raised in connection with the fact that the construction 
project near the library is still unlighted at night. Students 
crossing campus from the Maine Street fraternities must pick 
their way gingerly over the maze of wires, pipes, tractors, 
cement mixers, a,nd any other fixtures which Mr. Hackett, con- 
tractor, and others-connected with the job, see fit to store there 

Paths, which formerly took one safely to Hubbard Hall 
nbw lead to granite walls, ditches, and numerous other smaller 
obstructions. We would recommend that the contractors be 
instructed to hang kerosene lamps at these danger points or 
marke a new route with smudge pots before leaving for the 
night. It is a new experience for us to see a busy way blocked 
without any warning to the pedestrian. This lack of precaution 
could lead to serious injury and damage to clothes and other 
articles which the unsuspecting or groping student may be carry-

Pres. Coles Announces 
Receptions For Students 
4nd Faculty At His Home 

President Coles announced that 
he is planning to hold informal 
receptions at his home every Sun- 
day afternoon for students, mem- 
bers of the faculty, and any inter- 
ested friends who wish to come. 

Invitations are being sent to ev- 
ery fraternity, in order that they 
may be read to the students in a 
rather informal manner. The re-

date. They bear the name of the 
Honorable James Bowdoin, first 
patron of the college. The chair- 
man of the committee which inau- 
gurated the exercises was the late 
Professor Stanley Perkins Chase. 
Since its beginning, Mrs. Chase has 
always decorated the portrait of 
James Bowdoin in the Walker Art 
Building with a laurel on James 
Bowdoin Day. 

Bowdoin, which received its 
charter in 1794 from Massachu- 
setts while Maine was still a mari- 
time district of that state, was in 
the process of being organized 
when the Honorable James Bow- 
doin, son of the Massachusetts gov- 
ernor for whom the college was 
named, contributed 300 English 
pounds to the project as well as 
some securities and apparatus. At 
bis death in 1811. Bowdoin became 
his residuary legatee, inheriting 
his priceless art collection and the 
library he had collected during his 
residence in Europe as Minister to 
Spain and France. It is because of 
his scholarly interest that Bowdoin 
has made James Bowdoin Day one

President Turbeville 

Of Northland College 
Gives Chapel Talk 

Dr. Gus Turbeville, president of 
Northland College, Ashland, Wis- 
consin, spoke in chapel yesterday 
on intellectualism and its role in 
modern society. 

President Turbeville pleaded for 
a greater degree of intellectualism 
as an antidote for "current mass 
hysteria." ■• 

He described an intellectual as 
"not obscure, but the most lucid 
of human beings, whose purpose is 
to inform and not confuse." 

According to Dr. Turbeville, the 
way to make an individual think 
is to confront him with opposing 
ideas. He encouraged reading on 
"all sides" and warned against al- 
lowing emotions to govern one's 

Dr. Turbeville compared intel- 
lectualism to science citing that 
they both use methods "in the 
passionate search for truth." 

President Turbeville is a gradu- 
ate of Vanderbuilt where he maj- 
ored in psychology. He received a 
Masters' degree in sociology from 
Louisiana State and a PhD from 
the University of Michigan. While 
attending Vanderbuilt, he was a 
student of Professor Norman L. 
Munn, now of Bowdoin.

Horrendous Underground 
Movement On Campus 

By T. BUS MeKlnney, Jr. '94 
Recently we have noticed a her- with delight, "I certainly never ex 
rendou* underground movement a peeted to see this! They've finally 
foot on campus. In walking from 

the library to the Chapel, we have 
discovered a rather intricate sys- 

construction. Though we have 
sought information in several cor- 
ners of the campus concerning the 
purpose of this network of trench- 
es we have failed to uncover the 
answer. No one seems to really 
know why the trendies are being 
dug. Conjecture has mounted 
high among members of the Col- 
lege community. Many people have 
offered their opinions on the sub- 

Is it the entrance to some new 
and secret atomic installation? 
Are the construction men drilling 
an oil well? Is it a new under- 
ground passage way between the 
library and the chapel — or does 
it lead to Bill's? These are the 
questions which thinking students 
and faculty members have been 
asking themselves ever since the 
construction work began. 

One reliable observer has re- 
ported that daily Chapel attend- 
ance has been "spotty" this fall. 
He has suggested that the College 
Administration is having one of 
the trenches built as a new under- 
ground passageway in order to en- 
courage chapel attendance on rainy 

The ROTC Office, it is rumored, 
has already received a proposal 
that the trenches would make an 
excellent location for outdoor 
squad tactics. Seriously, they 
would make an ideal setting for a 
midwinter outdoor production of 
"All Quiet On The Western Front.' 
(We hope that the Masque and 
Gown will accept this idea in the 
same spirit as it is offered.) 

Upon viewing one of the canals, 
a Senior who returned to College 
a little late this year, exclaimed 

discovered a solution to. the cam- 
pus drainage problem." He did, 
however, express a small degree of 

tern of tunnels and trenches under displeasure at the prospect of not 

being able to canoe from Hubbard 
Hall to his classes in the Searles 
Building as he had done in previ- 
ous years. The information given 
to him by one of the Freshmen 
comforted him. The Freshman 
told him, "The Sailing Club mem- 
bers are actually promoting the 
canal construction. They hope that 
the canals will eventually be wid- 
ened to permit Bowdoin to hold 
intercollegiate crew races in front 
of the library." 

Though we are not definitely 
sure that we know why the ditch- 
es, canals, and trenches have been 
constructed outside' of the library, i 
we are pleased to see evident signs 
of progress in the form of needed 
campus improvements. 

Letter To The Editor 

oct. 8, 1952 

editor, the bowdoin orient, 

in re the issue of oct. 7, and the 
article in it pertaining to me, i 
would like the opportunity to point 
out the fallacies of said article, 
no. 1, i am a bull terrier by profes- 
sion, not occupation; no. 2, i was 
not lured by any scholarship, i was 
manhadled and dognapped by a 
group of voracious freshmen from 
that etoainshrdlu institution, and 
thank god for a short tail, i man- 
aged to escape; no. 3, i consider 
myself a connoisseur of the culin- 
ary arts and will eat nothing but 
sirloin smothered in onions, unless, 
of course, — but we all must get 
along somehow; no. 4, i — and 
would you please put this in caps — 
i would not lift a forepaw to that 
statue, although, and you may 
quote me on this, said statute de- 
serves no better; no. 5, i did not 
decline the offer to write for this 
pornographic sheet, i was incapaci- 
tated and unable to remit my ac- 
ceptance, and after this past weeks 
slandrous mendacity, i am recon- 
sidering, and if you really want me, 
youll have to proffer something 
like say the prexies formal gar- 
dens; no. 6, my only interest lies 
in the study and practical applica- 
tions of bull- terrier wifery; no. 7, 
i would say that the o. is definitely 
in the lurch, if i may quote; no. 8, 
a student with the true bowdoin 
spirit will neverneverneveronever 
mention the name of that etaoinsh 
dlu institution; no. 9, — here ad- 
dressing the author of that article 
— you vug — t hatll send you run- 
ning to your dictionary — i have 
never known greed, the rest ill let 
go; no. 10, i am quite alive; no. 11, 
i must admit some veracity in this 
column, dog yummies would jolt 
anyone — i know — and biting a 
radcliffe girl would be even worse 
than doing the same to a west-

Daily Chimes Concert; 
Tale Of Chimer Told 

[Continued From Page 1] 
the smallest, one and one-half feet 
by one and one-half. 

Since there are only eleven 
notes, the choice of pieces which 
may be played on the bells is 'nec- 
essarily limited. Only music in the 
scales of C, G, and D major may 
be played. It has been pointed out 
that there are a total of 39,916,800 
different sequences of.eleven notes 
each that may be played on the 
bells (or on any instrument with 
eleven notes) and that no one has 
ever come close to playing forty 
million sequences. But the lack of 
sharps and flats restrict the num- 
ber of possible tunes to a great ex- 
tent. A musical ear may detect 
flaws due to this restriction, even 
in the pieces played regularly on 
the bells. 

Tired Chima Ringer 

Playing the bells requires a good 
wind and great endurance accord- 
ing to those who have performed 
on them in the past. David W. 
Holmes '56, this year's chimer, is 
starting a move to get cal credits 
for the job, for he claims that he 
is much more tired after an after- 
noon session than after even the 
roughest of Mr. Sabasteanski's 

While playing, the ringer stands 
on a platform which runs along in 
front of the pedestal holding the 
levers. The end keys are about six 
feet apart; thus it is possible to 
stand in one place while playing 
very slow pieces. But the average 
number, not to mention fast se- 
quences such as the call to chapel, 
require the player to run back and 
forth along the platform in order 
to strike the keys fast enough. In 
addition, if the piece is not played 
from memory or by ear, the player 
must read the music in front of 
him and immediately transpose to 
fit the limits of eleven keys. 
Holmes attributes most of the few 
mistakes he does make to this dif- 

As long as there is somebody to 
play them, the chimes will remain 
a tradition at Bowdoin. Come rain 
or shine, each afternoon will find 
people telling time by their notes 
and enjoying, or at least occasion- 
ally stopping to listen to, the 
music as it rings out over . the 
campus. Bowdoin owes many 
thanks to William Payson for do- 
nating the chimes which have be- 
come so great' # a part of the col-

Behind The Ivy Curtain 

By David R. 
Hating activities continue to 
make the front pages of moat Of 
the college newspapers we receive. 
From the Brown Daily Herald 
come reports of two of the week's 
leading stunts. 

We quote: 'Do you bve in sin?' 
Would you if you had the chance?" 
These are the two questions being 
asked of Brown men by Pembroke 
freshmen as part of that college's 
scut week program. 

"Standing out like sore thumbs 
in their white beanies, the girls 
are sent on various missions by 
their scutmasters, usuall seniors. 
The two ques- 
tions cited above 
are part of a 
poll being con- 
ducted by the 
scuts, apparent- 
ly to help inflate 
Pembroke egos. 
'"Theme of the 
program is the 
'Development of more gracious 
young ladies.' In line with this, 
freshmen are required to wear, in 
addition to their beanies, to which 
veils must be attached, white 
shirts, brown skirts, white socks, 
white sneakers, white gloves, and 
have in her possession at all times 
a box filled with slips of paper 
bearing her name and dormitory — 
to be handed out to anyone desir- 

One of the traditional hazing 
stunts on the Brown campus 
proper is the so-called "flag rush." 
The frosh attempt to capture a 
white flag, atop a ten-foot greased 
pole, which is staunchly defended 
by sophomores. After 100 inspired- 
sophs turned back an attack by 
some 200 freshmen, the latter 
group announced the following 
plans. They would try to win the 
flag rush by means of a helicopter. 
The plan was temporarily delayed, 
however, because the only avail- 
able helicopter could not be used at 
the time. An upperclassman auth- 
ority, when informed of the air- 
borne plans, thought the idea un-- 
ethical, but added, "I imagine it 
would have been legal." 
Time Marrhf s On 
History is being made and a 
long-time precedent has been 
broken at Amherst. Time was 
when the Lord Jeff freshmen wore 
green beanies, signifying the 
greenness of their mentalities. 
This year tradition has been shat- 
tered by the decision to make the 
frosh beanies purple and white, 
the Amherst college colors. 

Last week we ran an account of 
the roof climbing Oxford Stego- 
philists. Evidently the report was 
circulated on the Yale campus as 
well. Two Yalies, who explained to 
police that they were experienced 
mountain climbers, were caught 
early one Sunday morning climb- 
ing up the side of the 284-foot 
Soldiers and Sailors Monument in 
downtown Indianapolis. "We just 
had the urge to climb it," one of 
the students said. 

Come on a my house 
An independent at the Univer- 
sity of Connecticut became upset 
by an ad which his school paper 
carried. He wrote: "On page three 
of said Campus there appeared an 
advertisement which hardly seem- 

Aaderaon '55 

ed in good taste: Lambda Chi Fra- 
ternity invites all freshman girls 
to attend a coffee at the chapter 
on tonight and tomorrow from 
8-10 p.m." Could it be that the 
student regrets the fact that he did 
not pledge Lambda Chi? 

Officials at that same college arc 
having trouble with a p roble m that 
is the reverse counterpart of one 
which we have here. The UConn 
students are tampering with me- 
chanical equipment being used on 
campus construction projects. Said 
tamperers are subject to court ac- 
tion- While here at Bowdoin we 
wonder if our group insurance will 
cover costs of damaged limbs and 
clothes caused by tumbling over 
the unlighted mechanical equip- 
ment being used in the construc- 
tion of the new music building. 

Old Friends 

" The following notice appeared*in 
the University of Rhode Island 
| student newspaper. "Dean Quinn's 
office has announced that as in 
past years, authorities at Brown 
and Rhode Island have agreed that 
any student from either University 
who is found on the campus of the 
other during the week preceding 
the Brown-URI football game is 
immediately liable to automatic 
suspension from the university. 
This agreement was reached m an 
effort to eliminate vandalism, de- 
facing of university property and 
students disturbances." 

Column Stretchers 

A student at Syracuse Univer- 
sity entered a mystery song con- 
test not long ago. A few days later 
he received a letter from the local 
radio station telling him that he'd 
won a free permanent wave — 
good anytime. 

The editor of the Marshall Col- 
lege newspaper says all faculty 
members should take a quiz in 
English. The college president call- 
ed the suggestion "unjust" and 
"unfair." But then, maybe the 
president didn't want to take the 
quiz himself.

speeches before 20 service clubs, 
they got to know some of the out- 
standing citizens of their commun- 
ities, all of whom were keen on 
showing the two foreign students 
the major sights of their areas. 

But it was the private homes 
that they most enjoyed. Heusch 
reporta that here "a country re- 
veals itself most unslaiftedly and 
most completely. We were given 
those opportunities in many states, 
and this is why I think the pic- 
ture of America is correct the way 
I saw it."

mountains and enjoyed numerous 
other activities, he examined the

Polar Bear Sailors Beat 
Maine, Bates In Squeaker 

By Robert M. Haeat '«4, ORIENT Sport* Editor 

Intcrfratemity athletics here at Bowdoin could undergo a change 
in rules and schedules that would or concievably might end the argu- 
ments which each year are added to. As the setup now stands there 
is one sport in the fall, football; three in the winter, basketball, bowl- 
ing, and volleyball; and one in the spring, softball. To stop the recent 
gripes about too many teams forfeiting their games, especially in con- 
nection with bowling and volleyball, perhaps it would be advantageous 
to limit the number of sports In the Interfraternity Leagues to two 
per season. In order to do this it would be necessary to drop one of 
the winter sports to another season and then add one to make up the 
six sports,- that is two per season. 

In the Fall touch football would of course be the main sport. 
Added to this season could be the controversial bowling in which a 
great number of forfeits have occurred. If interfraternity bowling 
began the last week m October and carried on until. Christmas vaca- 
tion it would not conflict with football or the other winter, sports. By 
scheduling it during this time a greater number of houses would par- 
ticipate without the usual number of forfeits. 

During the winter season only basketball and volleyball would 
be in operation. In a number of instances the same fellows play 
both volleyball and basketball for their fraternities so that scheduling 
would have to proceed as in the past years with one house not having 
to play both sports at the same time on the same night. 

In the spring softball would be continued along with the addi- 
tion of interfraternity tennis. The addition of tennis would provide 
the needed sixth sport and with a little support could prove to be the 
most successful. I would say that there are more students in the 
college who would rather play tennis than either bowl or play volley-

Whatever happened to the proposed plan for artificial ice? Bow- 
doin's hockey team is about to have the poorest season in its short 
career here at the school. Not only is there a shortage of ko. as 
usual, but there will now be a shortage of players. Bowdoin does not 
have the facilities to attract hockey players into the freshman class, 
and as long as other projects" keep taking precedence over a hockey 
rink Bowdoin sports will suffer. A system for the making of artificial 
ice would at least be a start in the right direction. Last winter the 
team had only three or four organized practices before they had their 
first games with Norwich and Dartmouth. Williams erected a rink 
last year and just recently Dartmouth put a system of artificial ice 
into their covered rink. Last season the hockey team was only able 
to play one home game. Considering that it cost the school at least 
600 dollars to put up the rink it was a pretty expensive game. If 
everyone does not get behind the hockey team and its plea for ice, 
the hockey team is going to go the way of all minor sports that have 
tried to crack the Bowdoin Athletic Department. 

Bowdoin's Sailing 1 Club opened up the 1953-54 sailing season by slip- 
ping by Maine and Bates 19-18-17 down on the New Meadows River. 
The Polar Bears were trailing the field going into the last race but 
came from behind to pull out a first place and the meet. The team of 
Bob Hawley, Ed Northrup, and Dave Gardiner got off to a slow start 
in the first two of the six races held finishing last in both of them. 
In the third race they took a second and then came through with three 
firsts in the last three races to take the meet. Scoring for the races 
is four points for first place, three for second, two for third, and one 
point for each boat starting and finishing.

Billy Pappas, one of New England's top college backs led UNH Tuesday, November 3 

to a 21-6 victory over the University of Maine. It was Maine's second 

loss of the season. Maine's only score came on a pass from Ed Bog- 

danovich to aging Dave Wiggin. Colby's White Mules finally won a 

game as they trounced Norwich 20-7. Colby's star back Charlie 

Windhorst was sent to the hospital for x-rays of his back. Should 

Windhorst be out of action for the state series the Mules would be 

in serious trouble. The Bates Bobcats lost a heartbreaker to Hofstra 

7-6. Hofstra recovered a blocked punt in the end zone for the lone and 

winning tally. Mosty lopsided score of the week — Alabama State 74, 

Savannah State 0.

First Defeat

By Ronald Ools 'M 

With the ARUs, the Sigma Nus, 
and the Zetes- paving the way, the 
1953-54 edition of the Interfrater- 
nity Touch Football League got 
under way last week at Pickard 

The ARUs won both of their 
scheduled games to move into first 
place in League "A". A determin- 
ed, but inexperienced Chi Psi six 
fell to a 6-0 defeat to the league 
leaders in the curtain raiser for 
both teams. The ARUs, figured as 
one of the teams to beat, also 
overpowered a weak ATO squad by 
a 41 to 12 score. 

Showing speed and fight a pow- 
erful Sigma Nu team rolled to an 
impressive 14-0 win over the Betas. 
Dave Melincoff and Louie Audet 
led the winners' attack. - 

The Zete win came as a forfeit 
over the Independents, who could 
not field a team. Both the Sigma 
Nus and the Zetes have identical 
1-0 records to pace League "B". 
Delta Sigs Impressive 

The highlight of the grid action, 
however, centered around the sur- 
prise win of the Delta Sigs over 
the ADs in a. League "A" tussle. 
The highly touted ADs were big 
favorites to take the game but a 
third quarter surge gave the DS 
their big 12-8 victory. The ADs 
scored a touchdown and a safety 
to take a commanding 8-0 lead at 
the half, but two Delta Sig TD's in 
the third period wrapped up the 
ball game. 

Leading the Delta Sigs to vie- 

the score with less than a 


to play.

the United Church of Bridgeport, 
Connecticut, spoke in Sunday 
Chapel about mankind's energy to 

Rev. Anderson stated that the 
enemy of effective living is the 
feeling that we don't count much. 
He cited a survey of college stu- 
dents of which 90% had this feel- 
ing. Many cowered under the fear 
of the draft. Some people feel a 
sense of relief when they art con- 
sidered as nothing and thus need 
not worry about responsibilities. 
He said that we need a healthy 
feeling of significance to be any- 
body. Rev. Anderson added that 
feeling overimportant is even a 
more serious crime. 

Miracle Workers 

The Reverend said that miracle 
workers are few in number. They 
have given us the printing press, 
radio, and television, but now mir- 
acle workers are needed to make 
their use possible. Every man is 
important You need not be a mir-

Professor Moulton 
To Attend Meeting 
Of Atlantic Biologists 

Professor James Malcolm Moul- 
ton is to take port in the Atlantic 
Fisheries Biologists Meeting, 
which is to be held at Jaffrey, New 
Hampshire this week end, October 

Biologists from all over the At- 
lantic seaboard who arc interested 
in Atlantic fisheries will be at- 
tending this meeting. 

Program for Meeting 

After registering on Friday, the 
delegates will meet Saturday 
morning for a discussion on all 
aspects of Atlantic fisheries, in- 
chiding conservation, population, 
and behavior patterns. On Satur- 
day afternoon, a discussion will be 
held concerning all types of native 
shellfish, and on Sunday, the im- 
portance of societies such as the 
Atlantic Fisheries Biologists and 
how they best can contribute their 
services to people interested in the 
welfare of ocean life. 

Particularly interesting to Pro- 
fessor Moulton will be the discus- 
sion on shellfish, for he and Pro- 
fessor Alton Herman Gustafson 
have been conducting a study of 
the quahog. a type of hard-shelled 
Clam, during the summer. Profes- 
sor Moulton has been studying the 
larvae of the clam, the plankton, 
while Professor Gustaf son's stud- 
ies have concerned mainly the 
adult form.

Joins Faculty 
Of U. Of Iowa 

Ernest F. Andrews, Jr., former 
director of radio-journalism at 
Grinnell College, Grinnall, Iowa, 
has been named to the faculty of 
the State University of Iowa 
School of Journalism. The appoint- 
ment was announced by Professor 
Leslie G. Moeller, director of the 

Mr. Andrews will head the 
radio-journalism and public rela- 
tions sequences at SUI. 

While at Grinnell, Mr. Andrews 
produced a series of dramatic ra- 
dio shows for twenty-seven radio 
stations in eighteen states. He was 
a member of the Grinnell College 
faculty for six years. 

Mr. Andrews received the A.B. 
degree from Bowdoin College, 
Brunswick, Maine, in 1940. After a 
three-year term of duty with the 
Coast Guard, he returned to school 
at Harvard University and receiv- 
ed the M. A. in history there in 
1947. He has done graduate work 
at Boston University and at SUI 
in mass communications and plans 
to complete his program for the 
Ph. D. degree while on the faculty 
at SUI. 

Prior to his going to Grinnell, 
Mr. Andrews worked for the Ban- 
gor (Maine) Daily News, the Bar 
Harbor (Maine) Times, and the 
Providence (R.I.) Journal. He was 
also on the news staff of several

nity, and of the Association for 
Education in Journalism. 

Team Loses Anthony; 
Day, Gelinas Return 

Fullback Hal Anthony, South 
Portland is out for the season was 
the gloomy word from Polar Bear 
football coach Adam Walsh. An- 
thony will enter the Maine Gener- 
al Hospital soon for his second 
knee operation within a year. He, 
like Totman was injured in the 
Wesleyan game two weeks ago. 

Although Totman's elbow is still 
in a cast, there was faint hope 
that he might return for the 
Maine game, last of the state ser- 
ies round-robin, at Orono. It was 
Totman who led the Bowdoin at- 
tack against Maine last year. 

A bright note was the recovery 
of Phil Day. He is a good receiver 
and should be ready at least by 
the state series opener a week 
from Saturday. Walsh is looking 
forward to the return of Gary 
Gelinas, a sophomore who was in- 
jured in the first scrimmage of 
the season. Gelinas probably will 
be ready for the Williams game 
and should be a big help in the 
state series. 

Bowler. Standouts for, the ADs 
were Dave Rogerson and Gene 
Helsel, a freshman. 

Taking up from where they left 
off last season the Kappa Sigs 
overpowered a weak Psi U team 
24-6. The Psi Us kept pace with 
their faster, more experienced foes, 
until the fourth quarter. At this 
point the game was tied 6-6. 

With Lenny Plasse and Ted 
Kenney providing the spark, the 
Kappa Sigs went on to score four 
TD's without a jPsi U retaliation. 
Kenney turned in some sparkling 
pass receiving in leading his team 
to victory.

Play By Don Carlo To 
Open Dramatic Season 

[Continued From Page J] 
tryout play in recent years was 
played in Memorial Hall on a 
procinium stage, a faculty cast 
production "Of, "One On The 
House," by Whitney '23, in 1951. 
It has been the policy of the 
Masque and Gown to encourage 
play-writes among the alumni as 
well as in the undergraduate stu- 
dent body, by producing their 
plays whenever possible. The 
Executive Committee accepted 
Carlo's play as a substitution for 
another which had been scheduled 
last spring, when Mr. Carlo sub- 
mitted his script this summer. The 
artist will be on campus for the 
final rehearsals and performances 
of his play. 

All in all, it was an interesting and 
enjoyable evening. Inasmuch as it 
was possibly the first time the 
Athletic Department has released 
films of this importance, the 
Committee thanks Adam Walsh 
and the Athletic Office for their 
service, and we remind the stu- 
dents of this week's Bowdoin-Am- 
herst tussle which will again take 
place on the screen in Smith Au- 
ditorium at 8:00 pjn. Totman will 
do the play by play account of the 
reel which lasts from 45-nrinutes 
to 1 hour.

Cosgrove as he tried to get away 
a pass, and recovered the result-

Knight bucked over for the score 
on the next play and Will Mcfar- 
land converted. Amherst lost two 
other fumbles in the second pe- 
riod, one on the Bowdoin 26 and 
the other on the Polar Bear six. 
The same pattern of the first 
half continued during the third 
and fourth periods of the game. 
Amherst needed only five plays 
and a fifteen yard penalty to 
move 52 yards for their third 
score on an 18 yard pass from 
quarterback Knight to Jim Rich- 
ardson. Al McLean, Bob Jedry, 
and Turner moved the ball 40 
yards on four plays as Bowdoin's 
forward wall was swept under by 
Amherst. Johnny Libby took over 
seven for Cosgrove in the early minutes 
of the third period and managed

(Really too bad about <yShame-f When we finally got to Everett's

h»ve known better. It was all his

What, you didn't hear about it? 

Oh, you were down at Amherst 
*rtth all the other pall-bearers this 
week end . . . Well, then, let me 
•tart from the beginning . . . ) 

You do know Bill C Shameless, 
don't you ? He's that fellow whose 
folks had the formal garden and 
drank. You remember. 

Yea, that's the one. He was on 
the Phi Phi hazing committee this 

Well, anyhow, he decided to take 
Van Honk's Hypnotism I-II course 
this year as his "pipe." Like most 
"pipes" up here though, it didn't 
turn out to be quite as easy as he'd 
expected. For one thing. Bill 
didn't seem to have much natural 
ability in the subject. He got his 
room-mate once to sit on an up- 
turned wastebasket while he strok- 
ed the guy's forehead with his 
thumbs, looked into his eyes, and 
mumbled soothing words at him. 
Well, after three hours of this ac- 
tion, all he'd succeeded in doing 
was to raise two horrendous welts 
on his roomie's dome and put a 
neat wastebasket shaped crease in 
the seat of the guy's suntans. 

The next person he tried doing 
his homework on was the foreign 
student over at the Phi Phi House. 
When Bill took to staring, too hard 
at him, Lum Fung would scream 
and scoot out of the house. Lum 
thought Bill was trying to hex him 
with the evil eye. 

Well, since this was a reaction of 
sorts, O'Shameless kept right on 
trying — until one night, just af- 
ter dinner, the foreign student 
went after Bill with a butter knife. 
Then he decided that he'd better 
look around for someone else to 
practice on. 

He asked me, but I told him I'd 
see him in — well, let's say West- 
brook — first 

At any rate, it was last Satur- 
day evening when it happened. I 
had dropped over to his room at 
the old Phi Phi Frat Lodge to pick 
up a great copy of House Beauti- 
ful I'd lent him the week before. 
When I walked into his room, there 
he was before the mirror over his 
bureau making passes at it like 
mad and mumbling away to beat 
the band. His Hyp. I text was open 
and propped up against the mirror. 
so I knew he was working, and 
didn't disturb him. 

After a while though, I noticed 
that he wasn't droning to himself 
any more, and he'd stopped waving 
his hands at the image in the glass. 
He was just sort of standing there 
with his eyes all out of focus like. 
"Finished?" I asked. 
"Yes," he said, "I'm finished." 
"Swell," I said, "let's go down to 
Everett's for a cool one or three." 
"Yes," he replies, "let's." 
We started downtown, and I 
didn't notice anything too queer . . . 
except that once he walked right 
smack into a tree that was there 
and said "excuse me" to it without 
even batting an eyelash. 

asked him, sort of joking-like, if he 
wanted the first round. 

"Oh, Til pay for the first round," 
he said. "Glad to." 

Right then I suspected some- 
thing wasn't quite kosher with the 
boy. He just didn't do things like 
that. Unless he was "out of it" or 

"What's the matter, BUI," I 
asked, "are you sick?" 

"Yes," says Bill, and turns 
greenish like. 

Well, he did look sort of bad 
then, so I suggested that we go 
back up to the infirmary — still 
sort of joking — but he agreed to 
that too. 

Lilly took one look at Bill's face 
and ordered him to bed 'til the 
Doc could look at him the next day. 
After seeing him settled, I went 
home to bed. 

In the morning, I came over 
early to bring him some magazines 
and find out how he was doing. 

"You're looking healthy," I told 

"Feel fine," says he. 

Then Lilly comes in. She looks 
at O'Shameless and "Poor boy," 
she says. "Have a bad night, did 

"Awful," says Bill, and groans. 

Lilly gives him a lump of ice 
then, about the size of a hen's egg, 
to sort of cool off his mouth. Then 
she goes out. 

The Doc comes in next, snapping 
a thermometer real thefty like. 

"Sleep well, Bill?" the Doc asks. 

"Mrmph," says Bill around the 

"Great," says the Doc and pops 
the thermometer into O'Shame- 
less's mouth — right alongside the 
old frosty cube. He puttered 
around the room for a minute or 
so, then comes back to where Bill 
is lying. Out comes the thermomet- 
er and the Doc peered at it real 
closely, and then h\s eyes bugged 
out like they were on stalks. 

"Ods bodkins!" yelled the Doc. 
"According to this thing, you're 
not only dead, boy . . . but you've 
froze to death." 

"Yes, Sir," said Bill after he 
took the lump of ice out of his 
mouth. Then he gave a little shiv- 
ver and died. 

Oh, well, like I said, it was no- 
body's fault but his own. 

He should have know better 
than to try to get any construc- 
tive studying done on a Saturday 

Professors Root And 
Kamerling Hosts At 
Chem. Teachers Meeting 

Eighteen chemistry professors 
from ten New England colleges 
convened at Bowdoin this past 
week end for the fall meeting of 
the Ouro Boros, a chemistry teach- 
ers' group which has been in exist- 
ence for forty years. 

This club, named for a mythical 
serpent associated with alchemy, 
meets semi-annually to talk about 
new ideas in chemistry as they re- 
late to college chemistry teaching. 

Among the i coileges in attend- 
ance were Amherst, Brown, M.I.T., 
University of New Hampshire, 
Harvard, Wesleyan, and Worcester 
Institute of Technology. 

The week-end program included 
supper at Sunset Farm in South 
Harpswell, a tour of the new Bow- 
doin College chemistry buildings 
and an evening bull session. Pro- 
fessors Root and Kamerling of the 
Bowdoin faculty were hosts.

Possible Projects For 
Year Chosen By St. 
Curriculum Committee 

The posibilities of an honor sys- 
tem, a revision in the language re- 
quirement to include the choice of 
Spanish, and a change in the cur- 
riculum to include more semester 
courses are three suggestions 
chosen by the Student Curriculum 
Committee as possible projects for 
this year. 

These suggestions, selected from 
a longer list discussed at the first 
meeting of the Committee last 
week, have been submitted to the 
houses for general student reac- 

The results of the sampling of 
student opinion will be tabulated 
at the next meeting of the Com- 
mittee on Tuesday, October 20. 
Work will then begin on the prob- 
lem deemed the most pressing. 

The usual procedure in covering 
a problem starts with the appoint- 
ment of a sub-committee of two to 
six members which studies the 
problem in detail and then reports 
to the whole Committee. The re- 
port is approved or revised. Then 
the finished draft is submitted to 
the administration. 

Rejected Once 

If the Committee decides to pro- 
ceed on the discussion of an honor 
system it would not be the first 
time that such a possibility had 
been raised at Bowdoin. Several 
years ago an honor- system was re- 
jected by a student referendum af- 
ter having occasioned a long and 
hot debate. 

A revision of the language read- 
ing requirements might enlarge 
the present choice of French or 
German to include Spanish. Pro- 

Student Council Votes 
To Begin Football 
Rallies At 9:00 P.M. 

It was decided at Monday's* 
Student Council meeting to begin 
the Friday evening football rallies 
at 9:00 P.M. rather than at the 
usual 7:00 P.M. time. 

This later starting time would 
allow both the dates arriving on 
the 8:30 train and the 'early flick 
group' to join the rally and thus 
make increased attendence possi- 

In regard to James Bowdoin 
Day it was urged that each fra- 
ternity send at least twenty men 
to the ceremonies to insure a good 
sized audience. Freshmen were 
also reminded to dress properly 
and not wear large name cards, 
onions and the like. 

Large Banner Pilfered 

The Kappa Sigma Council rep- 
resentative announced at the 
meeting that a large home-made 
Kappa Sigma banner was stolen 
during a recent ROTC afternoon 
drill. The banner, valued at thirty 
dollars, was highly regarded by its 
owner and it was sincerely hoped 
that it would be returned. 

The Council also urged each 
member to impress upon the fresh- 
man from his fraternity the im- 
portance of obeying all college 
rules. It had been observed that 
many of the freshman were not 
remembering the Bowdoin "hello" 
and were generally lax in obeying 
the rules governing their behavior. 

Matters regarding the" Messiah 
week end, the White Key, and the 
college path situation were post- 
poned until they could be consid- 
ered by the administration. 

Williams College 
Bowdoin Men To 

Williams College, which will be 
host to the Bowdoin football team 
and those undergraduates who 
make the trip this week end, is lo- 
cated high in Massachusetts' Berk- 
shire Hills. The host school, while 
similar to Bowdoin in some ways, 
has many distinguishing character- 

Williams was established as a 
"free school" in 1791, and as a col- 
lege in 1793. The first classes were 
held in the building now known as 
West College. At that time, in 
addition to an elementary division, 
which was entirely free, there was 
a grammar school for more ad- 
vanced students. Tuition for the 
grammar school was 35 shillings. 
It is interesting to note here that 
in an early petition to the state 

ponents of the change have at- 
tempted to show the increasing 
need and use of Spanish among 
college graduates. 

A discussion of the year and se- 
mester course situation might in- 
clude marking and prerequisite 
problems as they are effected by 
College, regulations. 

The number of possibilities for 
projects mentioned at the initial 
meeting of the Curriculum Com- 
mittee indicated that the group's 
second year should be a busy one. 
Committee chairman, David B. 
Starkweather '55 recently em- 
phasized the need for continued 
student interest and suggestions, 
particularly in regard to the three 
suggestions now before the houses. 

Starkweather said that the 'com- 
mittee feels that its suggestions 
last year were constructive and 
well received by the administra- 

Although of vastly different 
actual size, the sun and the moon 
take up approximately the same 
arc of space in the sky when ob- 
served from the earth.

The world's most famous towers are, left to 
right, the Eiffel Tower, the Tower of London 
and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. 

But in America, the tower-come-lately (ex- 
treme right) may rapidly become as familiar 
as the old landmarks of Europe. It is one of 
the Bell System's radio-relay stations which 
speed telephone calls and television programs 
coast to coast. 

In May, 1948, these towers connected only 
five Eastern cities. Five years later the TV 
network included 95 towns and more are being 
added all the time. 

Being the first network of its kind in the 
world, the planning, research, engineering 
and construction requirements are providing 
real opportunities for the kind of people who 
like to pioneer. 

If working on new developments appeals to 
you, check with your Placement Officer for 
the details on employment with the Bell Sys- 
tem. There are positions open for electrical, 
mechanical and civil engineers, as well as

Political Forum Holds 
3rd Meeting; Coles 
Announces New Fund 

The Political Forum held its 
third meeting of the year last 
Monday night to hear the reports 
of the three committees, speak- 
ers, . documentary films, and dis- 

At an executive meeting after- 
wards Professor Athern P. Dag- 
gett reported that President James 
S. Coles has announced that "fund 
for promoting international af- 
fairs among students" is available. 
Prof. Daggett said that there was 
a possibility that a trip to the 
United Nations could be planned 
for next Spring Vacation with the 
international affairs fund defray- 
ing expenses. There v is approxi- 
mately $200 in the fund at pres- 

Tentative plans have been made 
to have a speaker for Thursday, 
October 22. The discussion com- 
mittee is planning a forum for 
November 19. It is to be a discus- 
sion of nationalism in Asia with 
Edwin B. Benjamin, assistant pro- 
fessor of English, presiding. The 
documentary films committee is 
planning two pictures for Decem- 
ber 8.

Welcomes • Many 

legislature, college authorities ask- 
ed for a grant of land in that part 
of the Commonwealth which is now 
Maine. Williams now belongs to 
the group of colleges known as the 
"Little Three." Amherst and Wes- 
leyan are the other members. 

The Williams undergraduate 
body is made up of about 1,000 
men from throughout the U.S. 
However, more of them hail from 
metropolitan New York, than from 
any other single area. 

Delayed Bushing New 

The social life at Williams is 
similar to ours. There are 15 fra- 
ternities and the Garfield Club to 
which nearly every undergraduate 
belongs. With the completion of a 
Student Union this fall, the school 
adopted the policy of delaying 
rushing until the first semester of 
the student's sophomore year. 
Partywise, Williams is a wet col- 
lege. Many of their dates come 
from the nearby, by Bowdoin 
standards, girls' colleges: Mount 
Holyoke, Smith, Colby Junior, as 
well as Bradford Junior, Vassar, 
and Wellesley. Facilities for hous- 
ing dates on football week ends 
are as plentiful as those in Bruns- 
wick. Williams' fraternities in- 
clude chapters of Chi Psi, Beta 
Theta Pi, Zeta Psi, Alpha Delta 
Phi, DKE, Theta Delta Chi and 
Psi Upsilon. These houses are lo- 
cated in the Main Street and South 
Street area of Williamstown. 
Honor System Used 

Another sidelight about this 
school which may soon become in- 
creasingly important here is their 
use of the honor system. All ex- 
aminations (which are unproctor- 
ed) and classroom papers must 
contain the following statement 
signed by the student, "I have 
neither given nor received infor- 
mation in this examination," in 
order to make the paper valid. 

One last word on the host school, 
at last report they were said to 
be hospitable and glad to meet 
members of the visiting college. 
This attitude carries over to the 
athletic department which has of- 
fered special ticket arrangements 
for the Bowdoin men who make 
the trip.

Whtn you smoke Chester? ield it's 
so satisfying to know that you art 
getting tho one cigarette that's low 
in nicotine, highest in quality. 

A fact proved by chemical 
analyses of the country's six 
leading cigarette brands. 

And it's so satisfying to know that 
o doctor reports no adverse effects 
to tho nose, throat and sinuses 
from smoking Chesterfield. 

The doctor's report is part of 
a program supervised by a 
responsible independent re- 
search laboratory and is based 
on thorough bi-monthly exam- 
inations of a group of Chester- 
field smokers over a period of

Theodore M. Greene 
Presides At Informal 
Gathering In Sills 

Enlarges On Speech; 
40 Students Attend 

Theodore Meyer Greene, Profes- 
sor of Philosophy at Yale Univer- 
sity, presided at an informal gath- 
ering in Sills Hall last Thursday, 
James Bowdoin Day. 

At this meeting, he enlarged on 
some of the topics of the speech he 
had given that morning. His chief 
topic was that he believed that co- 
operative discussion should be en- 
couraged. These discussions, he 
pointed out, are distinguished from 
a debate, which is a talk in which 
each side tries. to maintain its own 
point of view. He cited an example 
when he retold the story of "The 
Grand Inquisitor" f rom. Dostoyew- 
ski's Brethren Karamaaon*, in 
which it is explained why Christ, 
should he reappear today, might be 
crucified again by an immature so- 
ciety afraid of being free. This

ember 5, from l:30-to 4:30 in Ban- 
nister Hall, according to Profes- 
sor Frederic E. T. Tillotson, club 

While only 70 men are chosen 
for the traveling club, those on 
the "B" list will not be prevented 
from appearing in concerts, Prof- 
essor Tillotson remarked. Every 
member will appear in Handel's 
"Messiah", to be presented De- 
cember 5 at the First Parish 
Church, and in the annual Cam- 
pus Concert with Connecticut 
College, March 13. 

Following the trails, the club 
will be outfitted with robes and 
the first concert will be held 
Saturday, .November 21, at Far- 
mington. This will be a practice 

Professor Tillotson stated, "Ex- 
perience has shown us that most 
B men become members of the 
traveling club before the year is 
out." B men will be eligible to 
take the place of A men who, for 
some reason or other, drop out.

Tillotson Tells Of 
Hymn Backgrounds 

Professor Frederic E. T. Tillot- 
son spoke on hymns during Fri- 
day's chapel exercises. 

Professor Tillotson briefly out- 
lined the history of hymns and 
their accompaniments. He said, 
"Hymns have been sung since the 
time of Martin Luther and the 
reformation. Regardless of their 
religious background, people sing 
hymns." "One reason for this," he 
said, "was that hymns are a lot 
like folk songs." 

Going on further. Professor Til- 
lotson told about the new accom- 
paniments written for these 
hymns by Charles Villiers Stam- 
ford, one of England's foremost 
musicians. "In 1890, Stamford be- 
gan to improvise these new ac- 
companiments, called discants, 
for the old hymns.,' said Tillotson. 
"One of his assistants at Trinity 
College was T. Turchess Noble, an 
American. When Noble returned 
to America he brought with him 
the new music, but they were not 
published until 1949." 

Tillotson explained that future 
hymnal "sings" will be held, pro- 
bably one a month, with three 
hymns, two familiar and one new, 
being sung. 

Chapel closed with The "Ital- 
ian Hymn". Tallis' "Canon," and 
Luther's "Mighty Fortress." 

June Graduates Receive 
Higher Starting Wages 
Than Class Of 1952 

70 Per Cent Of Grads 
Sought Bureau Help 

Employment standards have not 
been relaxed and "industry con- 
tinues to look for the best quali- 
fied men for their training pro- 
grams," according to the Annual 
Report of Samuel A. Ladd, Jr., 
Director of Bowdoin College 
Placement Bureau, which was 
made public today. Starting sala- 
ries for 1953 graduates were 10% 
higher than in 1952. 

85 Firms Represented 

Approximately 70% of the se- 
nior class which graduated last 
June was registered with the 
Placement Bureau for vocational 
guidance and assistance, although 
many men were members of the 
ROTC or other military programs. 
Ladd's report states that the 
widely publicized demand for col- 
lege-trained personnel was re- 
flected at Bowdoin by the 85 firms 
which sent representatives to the 
campus, and by the many others 
contacting the office by mail or 
phone. Thirty-two of the first 100 
companies listed among the lead-

Representative From 
Institute Interviews 
Bowdoin Plan Students 

Bowdoin's foreign students 
were interviewed Monday by Miss 
Susan Katz, Section Head, in the 
Foreign Student Department of 
Institute of International Educa- 
tion. Those interviewed were the 
Messrs. Jacob M. Celosse, Jean T. 
Frasch, Koyu Kin jo, Pertti O. Li- 
pas, Carsten T. Moller, Robet Van 
Hoeken, and Edison F. Xavier. 
Miss Katz also interviewed Mr. 
Luis Gonzega Rivero, a teaching 
fellow in Spanish. 

The purpose of Miss Zatz's in- 
terview was to find hew ways of 
improving the program for for- 
eign students.- In her visit here 
she found our foreign students en- 
joying and benefiting by their 
stay at Bowdoin. 

The Institute has students in 
all types of universities and col-

James Bowdoin 
Held To Honor 


Young Republicans 
Reorganize Offices, 
Set Up Committees 

Last Tuesday, October 13, the 

Wheaton Girls Bowdoin-Bound 

have recently initiated special 
programs by which carefully se- 
lected non-technical graduates 
may acquire in a training program 
the necessary technical back- 

$310 Average Starting Salary 

During the year 1952-1953 more 
than 850 individual interview* 
were conducted on the Bowdoin 
campus with a large number of 
off-campus interviews also ar- 
ranged. Starting salaries averaged 
about $310 a month, with a fair 
number in the $350 and up range. 

An increasing number of vet- 
erans from the Korean fighting 
are requesting Placement Bureau 
assistance. The Bureau is check- 
ing Bowdoin men in the armed 
forces to learn their date of re- 
iease from service and their ca- 
reer plans. 

20% of Students Working 

Undergraduates employment is 
also an important Placement Bu- 
reau activity. About 209f of Bow- 
doin students are continually em- 
ployed on the campus and receive 
from the College an amount ap- 
proximately equal to that granted 
in scholarship aid. 

The report concludes: "Tne 
spring if 1954 marks the 10th an- 
niversary of the Placement Bu- 
reau here at Bowdoin, and it is 
gratifying to look back over the 
more than a thousand graduates 
who have been assisted in finding 
their life's career, many of them 
now in positions of responsibility." 

Young Republicans Club was held 
in which was laid the foundation 
of a successful school year. 

Among the most important busi- 
ness accomplished by the club was 
a reorganization of its offices, mak- 
ing additions to present posts and 
adding some entirely new officers. 
The new line of officers is as fol- 
lows: President, William A. Fickett 
'54; Vice President, Peter Z. Bulke- 
ley '55; Secretary, John Hovey '55; 
Corresponding Secretary, Fred O. 
Smith II "56; Treasurer, Stanton L. 
Black '54; Senior Representative, 
H. Payson Dowst '54, and Junior 
Representative, John D. Gignac 
'55. The office of secretary was 
divided because of the double 
amount of work that was required, 
and the Senior and Junior Repre- 
sentatives were added to form with 
the other officers the Executive 

Two Committees Set Up 

Also at this time two other com- 
mittees were set up. The first, 
Speakers Committee, will arrange 
for all speakers which the club 
plans to have at Bowdoin, and is 
composed of Robert L. Gustafson 
'56, Chairman, Fred O. Smith II, 
John Hovey and Robert W. Math- 
ews '56. The second committee is 
the Constitutional Committee as- 
signed with the task of drawing up 
the club constitution and present- 
ing it before the club for ratifica- 
tion; the members are Edward G. 
Trecartin '54, Chairman, John D. 
Gignac, H. Payson Dowst, and 
Francis P. Twinem Jr. '55.

Day Begins With Procession; 
Greene, Brountas Speakers 

James Bowdoin Day exercises 
were held on Thursday, October 
15, at 11 a.m. in Memorial 
Hall. The event was heralded by 
the procession of James Bowdoin 
scholars and Bowdoin professors 
who assembled in front of the Col- 
lege Library. Led by the College 
band, the procession slowly march- 
ed from the Library across the 
campus bright with autumn colors 
and entered Memorial Hall to com- 
mence the thirteenth annual James

Dr. Greene Cites Vital Heritage 
In James Bowdoin Day Address 

By John B. Goodrich '56, ORIENT Managing Editor 

Theodore Meyer Greene, prof- 
essor of philosophy at Yale, des- 
cribed "our vital heritage" as a 
genuine concern with the ongo- 
ing process, for people, and for 
piety despite the differences be- 

Americans still put first things 
first, he continued. We are still a 
frontier culture. 

He opened his discussion of 
"Our Liberal Tradition" by ask- 
ing two searching questions.

dents to be the high-point of the 

Compares Past With Present 
Greene also dealt with the Amer- 
ican student of today as compared 
with the student of his college day. 
He admonished the students, above 
all, not to become stagnant and 
mentally prematurely dead. Be- 
cause all professional organizations 
and institutions tend to become re- 
actionary, he warned the students 
to be suspicious of all that is re- 
actionary. Greene deplored con- 
ventional college sentimentality 
shown during college reunions by 
drinking and singing songs of 
questionable political value. 

Professor Greene encouraged the 
students to take on as many of the 
responsibilities in college life as 
possible, and not to leave them 
only to the dean and the faculty. 
More Fun In His Day 

He claimed that in his day, the 
student talked more, had more fun, 
and worked more. He drank chiefly 
to encourage better discussions. 

The meeting was attended by 
forty students. Professor Solmitz 
provided coffee which enlivened 
the talk. The students who attend- 
ed said that they felt it was one 
of the nicer occasions they had 
experienced at college, and that 
they wouM like to attend more 
discussions of this 1 type. 




Colby College, whose gridiron 
squad will meet the Polar Bears 
at Bowdoin on Saturday to open 
another state series, is a coed in- 
stitution near Waterville, Maine. 
Its 140 years of service has re- 
cently been climaxed by the mov- 
ing of the entire campus in a 22- 
year project, which has attracted 
nationwide attention. 

The college is located just a 
little over 50 miles north of the 
Bowdoin campus, on the outskirts 
of Waterville, a sizeable town of 
some 18,000 inhabitants. Its 
beautiful campus, located on a 
600-acre expanse on Mayflower 
Hill, is one of the showplaces of 

Name Changed Frequently 

Throughout its illustrious his- 
tory, Colby has had its name un- 
dergo frequent changes. It was 
chartered as Maine Literary and 
Theological Institution in 1813, 
but eight years later it became 
known as Waterville College. 
However, soon after the Civil 
War, in 1867, the name was 
changed to Colby University sub- 
stantially its present form. But it 
was not until 1899 that it assumed 
its current title, Colby College. 

Like most other early colleges, 
Colby was founded under the aus- 
pices of one particular denomina- 
tion, in this case Baptist. Now, as 
for a great number of years, it 
has bom completely non-secta- 
rian. Originally, the student body 
was composed entirely of men, but 
in 1871 women were first admitted 
to Colby, the official description 
of which is now an Independent 
College of Liberal Arts for Men 
and Women. 

650 Men, 400 Women 

As in the case of Bowdoin, 
Colby offers only a Bachelor of 
Arts degree and no graduate 
courses. Its faculty, some 80 
strong, including two Bowdoin 
graduates, serve a total of 1050, 
divided between 600 men and 450 

Its geographical representation 
is much like Bowdoin's, as most of 
the undergraduates hail from 
Massachusetts and Maine. New 
York, Connecticut, and New Jer- 

sey also contribute their share of 
students. But last year under- 
graduates came from such far-off 
places as China, Greece, Finland, 
Holland, and Iran. 

Colby's endowment is $4,600,000 
and its library has about 150,000 
volumes, both figures being some- 
what smaller than Bowdoin's. Its 
ROTC unit, the Department of 
Air Science and Tactics, is a re- 
quired course for every male stu- 
dent in his freshman and sopho- 
more years.

Council Announces 
Elections For Two 
New Senior Officers 

At Monday afternoon's Student 
Council m eet ing it was announc- 
ed that daring the Messiah week- 
end all fraternities could be open- 
ed in which there were twenty- 
five or more dates. 

In conlunction with this Coun- 
cil President David S. Rogerson 
stated that it was a social week 
end and. any fraternity which was 
opened for dates could have their 
bar op?n after the singing. 

The nominations for the Sopho-

ed and it was decided that the 
elections would be held next week 
It was also decided that the senior

President and Secretary to fill 
the existing vacancies in these po- 

Since only the Harriet Beecher 
Stowe House is authorized by the 
college there is a constant short- 
age of rooms for dates on party 
week ends. The shortage of rooms 
exists because several women's 
colleges only allow their under- 
graduates to stay in college ap- 
proved rooming houses when 
spending the night away from the 
school. It was therefore decided 
by the council to ask the admin- 
istration to authorize more pri- 
vate rooms in order to accomodate 
roomless female visitors. ■

Under the direction of coach Al- 
bert R. Thayer a discussion was 
held on this year's topic, "Resolved,

Beckwith, sang Bach's "Grant Us 
to Do with Zeal," followed by the 
invocation by the Rev. Howard

in Portland. 

Straight 'A' Men Honored 
James S. Coles, Ph.D., President 
of the College, then awarded books 
bearing the plate of the Honorable 
James Bowdoin to undergraduates 
who have maintained an "A" rec- 
ord throughout two semesters. 

Paul- P. Brountas '54 presented a 
short address on the importance of 
James Bowdoin Day — an address 
which brought to light new mean- 
ing of the Bowdoin scholar. 

"And finally, to the James Bow- 
doin Scholars themselves, this day 
has a lasting significance. For it 
is a day on which we feel some- 
what proud and yet humble 

proud to be a part of Bowdoin 
College and of all for which it 
stands — and yet humble before 
its achievements and traditions. 
The James Bowdoin Day cere- 
mony is neither ostentatious nor 
extraordinary. In fact, the pro- 
cession, the assembly, the ad- 
dresses, and the awards are all a 
part of a simple but sincere cere- 
mony, and for that sincerity, we 
who are being thus honored to- 
day thank the College." 
Theodore Meyer Greene, Ph.D., 
LLJX, D.D., Professor of Philos- 
ophy and master of Silliman Col- 
lege at Yale University, gave the 
James Bowdoin Day address en- 
titled "Our Liberal Tradition." He 
pointed out that Life is an adven- 
ture, an adventure into which we 
must throw ourselves wholeheart- 
edly. We must discard our "old 
skin," and make our lives worth- 
while for our own benefit and the 
benefit of others. We must be 
ankful for the opportunities 
given us and do our best to grasp 
and develop them. 

Afternoon Meeting Held 
In the afternoon, an informal 
discussion group was held in the 
Peucinian Room, where Professor 
Greene talked with many students 
on philosophical matters of interest 
to them and answered any ques- 
tions which were brought up. 

Those students receiving straight 
"As" in their courses for the past 
two semesters are as follows: Wil-

More Dates' Rooms Needed 

The Student Council this week asked the Dean to extend 
the list of college approved rooming facilities. The request stem- 
med from the fact that a number of colleges and prep schools 
require girls coming to Bowdoin stay at tourist homes sanctioned 
by Massachusetts Hall. We understand and agree with the 
reasons for this custom, but since there is only one rooming 
house now on the list, we feel there is ample justification in the 
Council's request for more authorized facilities. 

Colby, one of the colleges requiring Bowdoin approval, re- 
cently discovered that more girls were signed out for this one 
house than it could possibly hold. This fact alone points to the 
inadequacy of the present arrangement. It also seems peculiar 
that the college should prepare through the- Union a list of 
available rooms which it neither sanctions, nor even relies on 
when the authorized facilities are overcrowded. 

We feel that approval could be extended to the New 
Meadows Inn and the homes of faculty members and towns- 
people without jeopardizing the reputations of either the stu- 
dents or the colleges involved. If the Student Union list could 
be used as one source of private rooms which meet administra- 
tion stnndards, the solution to this problem may be forthcoming.

Wheaton College, oft referred to 

as Bowdoin's Sister College, is ma- 
jestically situated in the petit town 
Of Norton, Mass. Whea ton's be- 
ginning connection with BowdJn 
was instilled through President 
Cole of Wheaton. President Cole, 
also an alumnus of Bowdoin, was a 
good friend of Donald B. MacMil- 
lan which accounts for the mesning 
of the Bowdoin white and the 
Wheaton purple being carried to 
the North Pole in 1911. This is the 
first significant tie between these 
two institutions of education. 

Wheaton College is a living 
monument to a great woman. The 
original idea was conceived in the 
the mind of. Judge Laban Wheat- 
on's daughter-in-law. This woman, 
•Eliza Chapin Wheaton, was so en- 
thusiastic concerning the institu- 
tion that she cut herself and her 
husband off from any future in- 
come. This was in conformance 
with the idea of a seminary in me- 
moriam of the Judge's daughter, 
Mrs. Eliza Wheaton Strong. 
First Class In 1835 

The suggestion for a seminary 
was proposed in 1834, and within 
a year this materialized into a liv- 
ing organ. In such an undertaking 
the founders needed an experienced 
woman educator. This woman was 
Mary Lyon from the Ipswich Sem- 
inary and she in turn selected Miss 
Eunkr Caldwell as the first "princi- 
pal of Wheaton Female Seminary. 
In April, 1835, the first class signed 
the metriculation book. These are 

Sunday's Sartorial Disrespect 

Dress at Bowdoin is, as most of us realize, somewhat more 
informal than at many of the New England colleges. In a large 
part this is caused by the geographical location of the college. 
Yet, in spite of this, it seems to exhibit an undergraduate atti- 
tude — an attitude which can be seen at its worst most any 
Sunday afternoon in the chapel. 

Last Sunday, for example, when Rev. Robert H. Dunn 
looked out at the assembled undergraduates his eyes were 
greeted by a maze of satorial disrespect. Varying shades of 
buckskin shoes were nattily combined with dingy sweat socks. 
Sweaters and sport jackets partially concealed shirts with fly-

a rather distasteful scene for any visitor who happened to be 
participating in or attending the chapel exercises. 

The idea of informality, or casuality, as it may be, is rea- 
sonably acceptable for classes and athletic events, but, we be- 
lieve, every student should have enough respect for the Sunday 
Chapel services to appear dressed properly. This is one col- 
lege function which all undergraduates should attend in suits 
and regulation shoes. Or has Bowdoin informality reached the 
point of complete disrespect?

Letter To Editor 

For the benefit of those people 
who believe that Bowdoin's foot- 
ball team last year was only a little 
above average, or could have done 
better, I submit the following. Last 
year . . . 
Bowdoin beat Maine, 33-14. 
Maine beat Rhode Island, 13-0. 
Rhode Island beat Brown, 7*6. 
Brown beat Harvard, 28-21. 
Harvard beat Dartmouth, 26-19. 
Dartmouth beat Columbia, 38-14. 
Columbia tied Army, 14-14. 
Army beat South Carolina, 28-7. 
South Carolina beat Furman, 

Furman beat West Virginia, 

West Virginia beat Pittsburgh, 

Pittsburgh beat Notre Dame, 


Which proves that last year 

Bowdoin was better than Notre 

Dame, now the number one team in 

the country.

which fostered the original institu- 
tion in Norton, which today is 
widely acknowledge as one of the 
leading women's colleges in the 

Wheaton Female Seminary 
seemed to be a stepping stone for 
Mary Lyon and Miss Caldwell to 
transfer to Mt. Holyoke. These 
originals felt that they were need- 
ed to help out education in other 
parts. These educators naturally 
insisted that the Bible head the 
best-seller list at the Wheaton book 

Horrified Ladies 

While the Seminary was not ex- 
ceptionally liberal academically, 
even the most frugal young lady 
could afford the tuition of $20.00 a 
year. Of course these young lovelies 
had to be at least thirteen years of 
age in order to be accepted into the 
school. This nominal sum was 
added to by a $1.69 - $1.75 board 
bill per week. The ladies were hor- 
rified when the board went up to 
$2.00 a week in 1840. They felt that 
maybe they should get more than 
washing and lights for such an 
exorbitant price. This Seminary 
prospered until the year 1912 
when it officially became Wheaton 
College. The college has grown 
steadily throughout the twentieth 
century until it has reached its 
present magnificence. 

In 1912 the recreation hall was

Memorial Chapel is often considered a symbol of the college. Presi- 
dent Cole, incidentally, was a Bowdoin graduate. In Hebe Court are

the reader is doubtful as to the comments of the alumni who had 

named after Mary Lyon, one of the 
original founders. In the same year 
Cragin Hall was dedicated to Mary 
Cragin, an early professor of math- 
ematics. Other dormitories *iave 
been named Stanton, Everett and 
Kilham. These dormitories perpet- 
uate the names of prominent wom- 
en who have dedicated their lives 
as teachers, administrators and 
humanitarians of the college. 
No Longer A 'Select Few' 

La Maison Blanche or White 
House, as it is commonly called, 
was originally set apart from the 
other houses. In 1927 it accommo- 
dated 15 French majors. At pres- 
ent, however, this situation does 
not exist, as White House no long- 
er caters to a select few. 

Within the compounds of these 
scholarly dormitories the students 
apply themselves to achieve a lib- 
eral education. The foundation for 
all scholastic work starts with the 
basic requirements during the first 
two years. This is the stepping 
stone into the future major work

Letter To Editor 

oct. 15, 1953 
editor, the bowdoin orient, 

may i make an humble request, 
or do you have to change #very- 
thing that comes into your office 
to suit yourself, when an epistolary 
piece of literature such as my pre- 
vious piece is sent for publication, 
and signed, it should be published 
verbatim ac litteratum, and not 
mussed up. 

in reference to an unmentionable 
institution, i had used a punctua- 
tional adjective to replace invec- 
tives that have not yet been 
dreamed of. as i recall, it went 
something like this — if you do not 
delete it again — quote — „/--,„;; 
///-..(\i; . in place of this master- 
piece of implied disparagement, the 
reader found some unfounded con- 
glomeration of letters reading — if 
they could be read — etaoinshrdlu. 
this is awful, a transliteration into 
the greek alphabet might make it 
look more menacing, but as it 

stands, it minga. it has lost 

its entirety of invective feeling, 
and produces no emotion whatso- 

when 'someone writes asking a 
question or more or requesting 

and honors papers. This liberal 
arts program coincides very close- 
ly with the policy found at Bow- 
doin. There are only a few excep- 
tions: the girls do not take major 
exams in senior year, while some 
who have outstanding grades are 
chosen to write research papers. 

All our young ladies' time is not 
spent searching diligently through 
the musty archives of the campus 
library. Rather the Wheaton girl 
is apt to be found on any one of 
many Eastern Men's College Cam- 
puses. Many times we hear her 
melodic voice on our fair campus 
exchanging traditional "hellos". 
This greeting is part of the whole 
make up of a typical Wheaton girl, 
if such a type exists. Her spirit 
prevades at all social gatherings. 

When the campus queens come 
trapsing back to their domiciles 
after such week ends, they are 
positive to dodge the slype light. 
With fond memories of spent social 
life they never wish to become 
spinsters by stepping through the 
slype. These charmers would rath- 
er dream of being chased through 
the Dimple by a bare-footed Her- 
cules who is bound to capture 
them; thus taking the first vows 
of marriage. If for any reason 
these lovelies have not progressed 
this far in the pursuit of a perma- 
nent lover, they may be seen walk- 
ing three times around Peacock 
Pond. Some men become bashful 
after such physical exertion and 
may fail the Wheatonite by not 
kissing her. Here is where the 
wrath of the woman is mustered 
and she will usually push her pros- 
pective suitor into the pond. If 

something, do you always snub 
your nose like a radcliffe girl and 
flatly refuse to respond, i asked 
you to put one of my phrased de- 
lectations in capitals, although you 
bother to change other parts of my 
epistle, yet you denied me the 
pleasure of having a phrase put in 
capitals, and i am still in a quandry 
as to the meaning of the trisyllable, 

now, and i am serious, i have a 
name, i even bothered to sign it to 
the terminus of my epistle, adia- 
pheric of having it in your sheet, 
and as far as i am cognizant, you 
have no bone of mine. 

even more disrespectfully, 

veracity of these traditions, let him 
get in touch with two pledges at 
the Psi U. House who floundered 
in Peacock Pond last Sunday. 
These same two freshmen were 
noticed racing bare-footed through 
the Dimple on that same morning 
chasing two beautiful sophomores. 

Reserved for the stately seniors 
are the library steps upon which 
no other under-dassman may be 
found seated (author's note — 
There are approximately 70,511 
volumes in this library). The 
seniors also have another expressed 
privilege, that of leaving chapel 
first. This age-old tradition coin- 
cides exactly with one observed at 

Honor System New 

Although there are many notice- 
able similarities in reference to 
the Bowdoin- Wheaton relationship, 
as the 8-1 ratio of students to pro- 
fessors and both enrollments under 
1,000, there is a contrast by the 
use of an honor system. The honor 
system was incorporated in 1946 for 
the academic aspect and in 1949 
covering the social life. This whole 
system was initiated by the stu- 
dents themselves. This was made 
possible by the close relationship 
between the administration and the 
student body. Dr. Meneeley, now 
President of Wheaton College, -ex- 
pressed his complete satisfaction 
with the results of the honor sys- 
tem. He based his opinion upon the 

realized the benefit of such train- 
ing "in later life.

By Robert M. Horai'M, OBIENT Sports Editor 

Touch football, interfraternity style, is gradually turning' from 
what is suppose to be fraternity competition on a friendly basis to a* 
form of mass mayhem. Each house goes out to -win the game as if 
the lives of the members were at stake. Fights, arguments, and all 
kinds of underhanded tactics are used hy both teams throughout 
most of the games. It is time that this sort of thing came to a 
screeching halt. 

Last year and in years previous the fraternities cried ant against 
the White Key's saying that referees were not being assigned to the 
games as they should be. Now that the houses have the referees 
assigned to the game they are yelling at them. A touch football 
game just isn't a game anymore unless there is a brawl in it. There 
is bound to be a little argument in every game but lately it has been 
carried to extremes. In the recent Kappa Sig-ARU game they needed 
someone to count the knockdowns at the bell more than they needed 
a referee. The same thing was true in the Delta Sig-Kappa Sig: 
game this week only not to such an extent. What can be done about: 
this situation? If the penalties were stiff enough I think the whole 
thing could be practically eliminated. If someone gets into a fight 
throw them not out of the game, but bar fhem from all the remaining; 

games of the season including the playoffs.

The Independents forfeited their third straight touch football 
game this week. This seems like a sufficient reason to throw them 
out of the league and out of mterfraternrty athletics for the rest dfi 
the year. If they can't field a football team of six ma?n they will 
never be able to get men for basketball, bowling, and softball. When 
the first White Key meeting was held their representative showed and 
said they would be fielding a team this year. Where is it? The 
schedule was especially arranged to accommodate them by splitting 
up the leagues unevenly and thus necessitating games to be played 
on Friday in some cases. Now that they're in the league they don't 
show up.

Interfraternity tennis, despite arguments against It, still can be 
played here at Bowdoin if enough men are still interested in it. 
Down at Williams they have an elimination tournament set up where- 
by the fifteen nouses play in competition similar to the way the fall 
tennis tournament is set up. With twelve competing fraternities at 
Bowdoin it would be no trouble to have them split into two divisions 
with the winner of each half meeting for the championship. Get in 
touch with your White Key representative if you are interested m it.

The State Series opens up next week with the White Mules of 
Colby coming down to Brunswick and the Black Bears of Maine 
traveling to Lewiston to meet Bates. As it looks now Maine should 
take care of Bates and Bowdoin should eome through in a close one 
over Colby. The Black Bears, as a result of three state series wins 
in a row over Bates, have a slim two-game edge down through the 
years. Bowdoin, on the other hand, holds a twelve-game margin over 
Colby in the 64 games played. Maine holds a decided edge in the 
matter of state titles with 18 wins and seven ties. Defending cham- 
pion Bowdoin is in the runner up position with 12 championships and 
eight ties. Bates has five wins and six ties, and Colby trails with 
four wins and ten ties. The best Maine colleges could do this week 
end was to pull out one tie. Maine tied Yankee Conference rivals 
Connecticut 18-18. Colby was annihilated by Trinity 34-0, and Bates 
out, that Amherst-Trinity game is going to be a great. 

The most lopsided score of the week: Xavier (La.) 99-Tougaloo 0. 

Navy Dept. Announces 
Plan For Students In 
Management Program 

The Navy Department in 
Washington has announced that 
it is planning to take a limited 
number of outstanding young men 
and women for its 11th Civilian 
Management Training Program 
starting next July. 

Beginning salaries range from 
$3410 to $4205 depending on edu- 
cation and/or experience. The 
people selected for this program 
receive training designed to pre- 
pare them for responsible civilian 
administrative positions in the 
Department. It is pointed out that 
there are essential career posi- 
tions which must be filled even 
when openings in other categories 
are quite limited. 

Completion Of Exam Required 

One of the necessary qualifica- 
tions for the participation in the 

program is successful completion 
of the U. S. Civil Service Com- 
mission's annual Junior Manage- 
ment Assistant (JMA) examina- 
tion which will be given on De- 
cember 5, 1953. The Navy-empha- 
sizes that it is necessary to file 
for this examination before 12 
November 1953. Applications must 
be tn the Civil Service Commis- 
sion's Washington Office by that 
date. All students who may be 
thinking of a management career 
in Government are urged to take 
the examination so that they may 
be eligible for these opportunities 
in the spring. 

For Further Information 

Further information about the 
Navy Program and instructions on 
applying for the JMA examina- 
tion can be obtained at the Place- 
ment Office, the U. S. Civtl Ser- 
vice Commission, or directly from

in League "A" are the powerful 
ARUs, who romped over the high- 
ly tabed Kappa Sigs, 32-13.

way the Sigma Nus took a 14-13 
lead with them into the fourth 
quarter. The little speed merchant 
had scored one Sigma Nu T.D.

into Sigma Nu territory. Then

The Kappa Sigs, however, 
bounced back from their humiliat- 
ing defeat sit the hands of the 
ARUs and proceeded to roll up a 
19-^6 victory over the ADs. The 
ADs, disappointment of the sea- 
son so far, could not seem to fa- 
thom the antics of Ted Kenney, 
Kappa Sig sparkplug. Kenney 
caught just about everything 
that "Togo" Plasse threw him and 
romped for three TD's, and a 
Kappa Sig victory. 

Kenney is now the leading 
scorer in this early tabulation 
with seven six-pointers. 

of the once beaten ATOs, 18-6. Af- 
ter a tight first half, which saw 
both teams exchange scores, the 
Psi U machine started rolling. 
With Ron English and Don Blod- 
gett providing the spark with Psi 
Us rolled for two touchdowns and 
an 18-6 win. Both Blodgett and 
English turned in some smooth 
pass receiving. 

DKEs Squeeze By 

The closest game of the week 
was the DKE. Beta tussle. The 
i DKEs managed to eke out a 13-7 

Drawing first blood, the Betas 
jumped to a 7-0 lead in the first 
quarter. However, the DKEs ral- 
lied and trailed by only one point 
at the half, 7-6. The Betas man- 
aged to maintain this slim one 
point margin late into the last 

Things looked dark for the 
DKE men when a pass from He- 
selton to Sayward connected in 
the last few minutes of play and 
the DKEs went ahead for the first 
time in the ballgame. Final 
Score — 13-7, DKEs. 

For the second time in as many 
games the Independents could 
not field a team and forfeited to 
the T.D.s.

Advance In Fall Tennis 
Tour nam en t This Week 

Under the direction of varsity 
tennis coach S. A. Ladd Jr. the Fall 
Tennis Tournament is nearing the 
completion of the first round of 
play. However, there are many 
matches still unplayed and Ladd 
urges these delinquents to play 
them as soon as possible. 

Participants unable to play their 
matches, both first and seeond 
rounds, by this week will have to 
forfeit. This rule has been laid 
down because the tournament must 
be completed while the good 
weather prevails. All results should 
be posted on the score sheet in the 

Student Interest Hltrh 

Coach Ladd is well pleased with 
the enthusiasm the students have 
shown in signing up for this extra 
fall activity. There are 64 men in 
the tournament. 

His purpose in arranging this 
tournament is two-fold. For men 
who do not participate in varsity 
sports in the Fall and are not in- 
terested in Interfraternity Foot- 
ball, here is an opportunity to get 
some cal credits and enjoy yourself 
at the same time. 

Also, it will give Ladd a "sneak 
preview" on the men for next 
spring's varsity and junior varsity 
teams. Any questions players have 
contact Captain "Skip" Howard at 
the Beta house. 

Leading the field so far are Bill 
Gardner, Bill Freeman, Phil Mos- 
trom (seeded 8), and "Skip" How- 
ard (seeded 2). All these men have 
completed their second round of 

Others in the second round, be-

Frosh Football Tsam 
loses To Hebron 124; 
ffanfie, f otter Shine 

Behind a hard running single 
wing attack, Hebron marched 5? 
and 41 yards in the first and third 
quarters respectively to pay dirt, 
as the opposition easily whipped 
the Bowdoin Frosh, 12-0, at the 
winners' field on Saturday, Octo- 
ber 17. 

The decisive factor was the 
condition of the two teams. Heb- 
ron had already played two 
games and the experience they 
had gained therein payed off. 
Their offense was well-organized 
and kept grinding out yardage - 
233 yards worth - all afternoon. 

Only Three Scrimmages 

On the other hand, the visitors 
had only had three scrimmages, 
and thus few, if any, of the Bow- 
doin Frosh were m any condition 
to play anywhere near their best 
for any sustained period of time. 
Coach Frank Sabasteanski alter- 
nated two separate teams in an 
attempt to solve the problem 
without success. 

However, the freshmen always 
start their season very slowly, 
and Sabasteanski believes that 
the team played a good game, as 
well as .could possibly be expected 
under the pressing circumstances. 
He looks for major improvements 
in each succeeding tilt, all three 
of which are Friday home games. 

Outstanding in their first game 
were Art Perry, the captain for 
this game, Del Potter, and Mike 
Coster, whose defensive ability 
helped Check the always dange- 
rous Hebron attack. 

57-Yard March 

The first time the home team 
got possession of the ball, they 
rolled 57 yards in eleven plays to 
score their initial TD, with Pete 
Harney and Tom Taylor cracking 
through the Bowdoin line for con- 
sistent big yardage. Aided by Bo- 
bo Coburn's key block, Taylor 
scooted around his left end for the 
last two yards, putting Hebron 
in front for good. Art Perry raced 
in and blocked the conversion at- 
tempt to keep the score 6-0. 

Logan Hardie took the ensuing 
kickoff and raced from his own 32 
up to the midfield strip. Two 
plays brought the ball to the He- 
bron .40, where a fumble on a 
handoff was recovered by the op- 
position, thus ending the threat. 
Actually, this was perhaps the key 
play in the entire game, for after 
that the ultimate outcome was 
never in doubt. 

Scoreless Second Period 

For the rest of the first half, 
nobody seriously threatened, al- 
though Hebron did advance to the 
Bowdoin 43 and later the 30. 

Midway in the third quarter, 
Hebron started its final touch- 
down drive, stomping to the Bow- 
doin end zone in 9 plays from the 
Bowdoin 41. Harney bucked the 
middle of the line for the last 9 
yards, but his extra point attempt 
went wide. 

Bowdoin's left halfback, Del 
Potter, ran the kickoff back 25 
yards to his 45. In five quick 
plays, Bowdoin advanced all the 
way to the Hebron 29, where 
another costly fumble stopped the 
last Bowdoin threat. 

Deep in Bowdoin Territory 

Most of the final period was 
fought deep in Bowdoin territory, 
at one point to the visitors' 3, 
where Bob Pooles recovered a 
fumble. But on the first play an 
Intercepted pass gave the ball

By Robert M. H«rst *54, ORIENT Sports Editor 

Bowdoin won everything but the lers. Smythe hit the center 

ball game as Williams handed the 
Polar Bears the seeond defeat of 
the season 20-14. Bowdoin spotted (-Evans converted. Bowdoin prompt- 

the Ephmen a 20 to lead in the 
first half and almost came back 
and pulled the ball game out of 
the fire in a thrill-packed second 
half. The Polar .Bears fumbled on 
the Williams 29 with three minutes 
to go- and that was the game. 

The Polar Bears led m net yards 
rushing 188-68, and 193 to 45 in 
yards passing. Bowdoin also held a 
21 to 6 edge in first downs. But 
there weue other statistics in favor 
of the Purple, namely five fumbles 
by Bowdoin, four in the first half, 
and six interceptions, one of them 
returned 32 yards by Chuck Free- 
man for the deciding touchdown. 

It was a frustrating game from 
Bowdoin's point of view — brilliant 
running and dogged defensive play 
were mixed with fumbles and un- 
derthrown passes that went for 
interceptions. An interception set 
up the first Williams score after 
the Ephmen had failed to cash in 
on a recovered fumble at midfield. 
Starting on its five, Bowdoin mov- 
ed to the 17 on two carries by Lee 

four, and then took a screen pass 
from Fearon for the final eight. Bill 

ly took the kickoff to the Williams 
nine moving 48 yards in three 
plays. A Cosgrove to Coukos pass 
for 37 yards was the big play. Dyer 
picked up the balance on line 
plunges. But Fearon picked up a 
lateral from Cosgrove to Coakos 
and romped 06 yards before Cou- 
kos hauled him down from behind 
on the Bowdoin 25. 

A Cosgrove interception gave 
Bowdoin another chance which end- 
ed on the Williams 44 where Herb 
Ladds recovered Johnny Libby's 
fumble. Shortly before the second 
period ended Chuck Freeman pick- 
ed off a flat pass from Cosgrove in- 
tended for Murray, and went 35 
yards for Williams' third touch- 
down. Evans' conversion failed. 

Adam Walsh must have told the 
team during the halt to go out and

midway through the fourth period,

ray as Dana Fearon and Chuck

It carried 31 yards to the Williams 
33. Coukos drove 10 yards in two

field goal attempt and smashed to

Behind The Ivy Curtain 

By David R. 
The Harvard Radio Forum does 
Its share to enliven Saturday 
pi*hta\at the Cambridge school. 
A>ast week Earl Wilson, Al Capp 
fad Magno^Gabor were the guests 
W honor. Miss Gabor was asked to 
compare American and French 
Women. Miss Gabor refrained from 
commenting on the morals of the 
two groups, but did say that the 
girls here drank more. She also 
Stated that a state-side gal looks 
as appealing in dungarees as her 
European sister does in a "nice 
outfit/' After she went on record 
•a saying the Harvard man is the 
best dressed in the country, both 
In his undergraduate days and 
twenty years later, Al Capp coun- 
tered with, "Yes, he's stHi wearing 
the same suit." 

The Harvard 
| student can count 
several other ad- 
vantages. Dormi- 
ftory rules permit 
jdates to stay in 
jthe rooms until 
1 3:00 p.m. on week 
'nights and 11:00 
_J p.m. on week 
ends. The rooms, themselves, are 
bigger than we have here, have 
separate bedrooms for each occu- 
pant, and -usually have fireplaces. 
Outside of these things the Cam- 
bridge undergrad is pretty much 
like everyone else. One of their 
popular pastimes is playing the pin- 
ball machines at Mike's Club, a 
little eatery just off campus. They 
can be seen feeding nickels into 
these bell ringing, light flashing 
gadgets at any hour. Some try 
for home runs, others for pool balls, 
and still others attempt to. fill in 
the squares of a mechanical Tic- 
Tac-Toe board. Serious discussions 
about the ways to win free games 
S>re more common than guesses as 
to the outcome of next week-end's 
football game, and the players 
spend more nickels in an evening 
than a Bowdoin man trying to get 
an Ivy date. 

Amherst Again 
The following is an excerpt from 
an editorial which appeared in the 
October 5 copy of the Amherst 
Student. With two football week 
ends coming up, we thought this 
might be a good time to quote it. 
"... As the social rules were

ing conversation." 

Secondly, Professor Greene con- 
tinued, Socrates was interested 
•in humanity. He had "an everlast- 
ing respect for people." He was, 
in the true sense of the word, a 

Finally, he concluded, "Socrates 
was a man of natural piety. The 
Sophists believed that might 
makes right. The extreme Soph- 
ists, or sceptics, said there is 
nothing. Pythagoras reduced 
everything to man. 

Personality, Piety, Process 

Socrates, however, has a "pas- 
sionate belief in the righteousness 
of cosmos." In short, Professor 
Greene said in summary, he held 
that a man was signally powerful 
if he had personality, piety and a 
belief in process. The Yale profes- 
sor described Plato and Aristotle 
as examples of these three prin- 

Beauty, Professor Greene went 
on, may be said to include liter- 
ature, art and music. He defined 
beauty as the "article vitality of 
Greece both on the creative and 
the responsive side." Vitality is 
the important point, he emphasiz- 
ed. "A Greek tragedy was as 
great an event as one of our foot- 
ball games." Greek beauty also 
had a note of authentic piety, he 

Hebraic Tradition 

The importance of the Hebraic 
tradition, Professor Greene stat- 
ed, is "a living faith in a living 
god addressing himself to living 
men in an ongoing, meaningful 
historical process." He said that 
\Jiety is conceived so, that it is 
"honorable to worship him "God's

Turning to science Professor

the sum total of achievement 
Which is important but "the ge- 
nius of the modern scientific

scientific process in the hands of 
men of integrity interested in hu- 
manity and the nature of what 
they are doing on the other, we 
Should correctly choose the latter. 
Contribution of Demorracy 
Professor Greene described the 
genius of democracy as "a trust in 
the process of orderly self-govern- 
ment by the people and for the 
people in an ultimate pious res- 
pect for objective goodness and 

Justice." . . 

He criticized present day so- 
ciety in America for having a pre- 
ference for technical achievement 
pver process and for religous-isms 
instead of a faith in God.

this type of person as one who

piety, who wants to turn the clock

(among other things) designed to 
protect the College from a reputa- 
tion as a 'country club', they have 
been tightened in proportion to the 
number of men who sing obscene 
songs on the streets of the town in 
the wee hours of Sunday morning 
and those superior individuals who 
gossip about their 'affairs.' 

"There is a place for singing ob- 
scene songs — in the bar after 
dates are out of the house, but 
there is no place for bragging about 
'conquests'. Unfortunately, there 
are too many men on campus who 
can neither 'hold their liquor' nor 
their tongues. In an earlier day, 
a sense of discretion was a pre- 
requisite for every man who- aspir- 
ed to acceptance into the social 
community, and the criterion is by 
no means obsolete." 

The author of the above editorial 
suggested that the best way to 
keep these "gentlemen songsters" 
in line was to have the leaders of 
the houses supply a "healthy dose 
of social pressure to help educate 
their neanderthal brothers in the 
facts of life in society." Not a bad 

Midnight Oil 

The new director of the Wesley- 
an College Library has launched a 
program whereby there will be a 
reading room open to students 24 
hours a day. The plan calls for the 
storage of all permanent reference 
material in this room. One door to 
this room will remain unlocked all 
night, although the rest of the li- 
brary will be closed after regular 
hours. Provisions for improving the 
lighting and other renovations de- 
signed to make studying more 
comfortable have been made. These 
plans have much to commend 
them. The reserve book problem 
will be more adequately dealt with, 
and the student who wants to 
study late for a coming exam will 
have an ideal place to do so. The 
proposal to make the library into a 
better place to study is also praise- 

Red Tape 

One of the many rules estab- 
lished at Albany State College gov- 
erning the use of the Student 
Union is this one: "No amorous 
manifestations." (How about mak- 
ing love?) . . . And then there was 
the one about the Oxford student 
who discovered in the ancient by- 
laws of the University that he was 
due One pint of beer each day of 
exam period. He finally badgered 
the administration into granting 
the allowance according to the reg- 
ulation. The following day, how- 
ever, he received a neatly typed 
note on University parchment, in- 
forming him that he had been fin-

Warning Grades For 
Freshmen Are To Be 
Distributed Thursday 

Freshman warning grades will be 
given to the faculty advisors on 
Thursday afternoon, October 22, to 
in turn be distributed to the fresh- 
men, Dean Kendrick announced. 

This will give the freshmen a 
chance to meet their faculty ad- 
visors, if they have not already 
done so. 

The Dean recognises that these 
grades are no solid ground for 
drawing any definite conclusions. 
They are used to give an early in- 
dication of any difficulties that 
may arise, and to indicate what 
the trend is. They have no official 
status; they are not reported home, 
recorded in the office, nor are a 
basis for probation. * 

example of this American fascism. 
There will always be demagogues, 
he said. The problem is to keep 
the general public from gullibly 
accepting the doctrine of the de- 
magogues instead of maintaining 
a belief in "our liberal, freedom - 
loving' tradition." 

Final Advice 

In his concluding remarks 
Professor Greene explained the 
function of a liberal education. It 
is the student's duty to delve 
deeply into his rich heritage with 
a concern of how to live today. 

There is a popular saying, he 
concluded, that we should take it 
easy and take care of ourselves. 
Calling this intolerable advice, he 
urged his audience to take advan- 
tage of the adventure of life.

Letter Tells Story 
Of Williams Game 

(Continued from Page 1) 
trumpeter from Williams walked 
in. He was really good and he 
played for about half an hour. 
One of the fellows told me he was 
from Africa and he used to raise 
elephants there and that's how he 
learned to play the trumpet so 
well. He may have been just kid- 
ding though. 

We did go to e couple of other 
houses but they were a lot 
quieter. At Williams you can have 
girls up in the rooms until 3 a.m. 
That splits up their parties and 
it's a lot different from Bowdoin. 

The next morning we picked up 
our dates outside the church and 
drove them back to Smith. Then 
we went over to Mt. Holyoke, and 
listened to the jazz concert in the 
College Inn. We ate supper right 
there in the C.I., said goodby to 
everyone, then started back to 

Did you know the Bennington 
girls can stay out until 6:30 in the 
morning? That's what one of 
them told me Saturday night.

party up here. Please let me 
know if you can come. John's hav- 
ing his girl up from Wellesley too. 
Maybe you can come together.

I jest had t' see them hogs. 

"So I strolled up t' the fair 
grounds an' found a fence around 
it. They had a gate too, but they 
was a blue-serge man standin' to it. 
Apparent' they wanted ya t' buy a 
ticket. Well, I didn't feel 'twas 
worth buyin' a ticket, so I went 
'round back an' climbed the fence. 

"Well, I come strollin' up from 
the back, an' the first thing I sees 
is a little sty — I guess that's what 
you'd call it — with a shelf all 
around it with squares with num- 
bers in them painted on. 

"So I strolls up f this place, an' 
there's a bunch o' folks standin' 
around. An' they's got a bunch o' 
little biscuit pans settin' on a table 
in the middle all painted different 

"An' they was a feller in the 
middle shoutin' like he was hog 
callin' into a little thing an' tryin' 
t' make more noise than a herd o' 
cows. Now I didn't quite see all 
the purpose of all this, an' there 
was people runnin' around puttin' 
nickels an' dimes on the squares. 
They was another man in the 
middle who went around takin' the 
nickels an' dimes off the squares 

"Well, I figured I had as much 
right t' take them nickels an' 
dimes as the guy in the sty, so

when some fat lady goes stickin' 
nickels all over in front o' me, I 
picked a few up. 

"Well, things got perty dull jest 
standin' there an' pickin' up nick- 
els, so I strolled away. The next 
thing I saw was a bunch o' big 
signs with almost nekked girls on 
them. Like I said, that there was 
one o' the reasons why I come down 
in the first place. Well, there was 
a feller outsiden one o' these places 
an' was talkin' like a revivalist or 
sumpin' and" perdictin' the end o' 
the world. He was say in' that what 
you'd see inside the tent would 
make you reach for dear life. So I 
ambles over closer an' sees the 
feller's a old friend — well, mebby 
not exactly a friend, but he uset t' 
be a neighbor o' mine up to Aroos- 
took. Weren't so friendly, though. 
Seems once one o' my cows had a 
calf by his bull, an' he said half 
should be his. 

"Well, he warn't too glad f see 
me, an' he wouldn't let me in free, 
an' I didn't have a dollar out o' 
the money I'd took off that sty- 
place, so I strolled 'round back an' 
tried t' crawl in. Well, there 
weren't quite enough room for me 
t' crawl in under, so I spotted a 
rope .that was holdin' the tent 
down, an' J untied it. Well, this 
made things looser, an' I started in. 
Well, it was perty dark in there, 
an' I couldn't see t' trip over sum- 
thin', an' that's jest what I did. 
Well, the whole danged place col- 
lapsed. Now they was some sailors 
in there, an' they started cheerin' 
real loud an* cheerful like, an* the 
manager come runnin' around an' 
saw me under this pile of canvas, 
an' he suspected somethin', an' had 
me hauled in. 

"I was dinged disappointed, too. 
Never did get t' see them hogs." 

Outing Club Notice 

It has been announced that the 
Outing Club will hold a meeting 
on - Thursday evening, at 7:15 in 
the Outing Club room in the 
Moulton Union basement. 

150 Fathers Gather; 

Guests Of College 

Approximately 150 fathers of 
Bowdoin men will be guests of the 
college on Fathers Day, October 24. 

The Bowdoin-Colby football 
game in the afternoon will be the 
main feature of the day's program. 
In the morning, fathers may visit 
classes and attend a special Chapel 
service. President James Stacy' 
Coles will address the fathers at a 
business meeting of the Bowdoin 
Fathers Association in the Moul- 
ton Union immediately following 
the Chapel. 

After the Colby game, fathers 
and their sons will attend an in- 
formal tea at the Union where 
they will meet President and Mrs. 
Coles, Vice-President and Mrs. 
Norton, members of the faculty 
and other Bowdoin fathers. 

Purposes Of The Association 

The Bowdoin Fathers Associa- 
tion is composed of fathers of men 
currently enrolled at Bowdoin, or 
of men who have attended Bow- 
doin. Its major purposes as set up 
in the by-laws are to promote a 
"family-like relationship between 
fathers and the College, its Presi- 
dent and Faculty; a closer ac- 
quaintance and relationship be- 
tween the fathers; a definite Col- 
lege link between fathers and sons 
for sharing responsibility and par- 
ticipation in College matters and 
activities; and a definite and vital- 
ly interested medium for dissem- 
inating information about Bow- 
doin College to the public and par- 
ticularly to prospective or definite- 
ly interested students and their 
families." The association meets 
annually on Fathers Day. 

Notice To Seniors 

The Placement Bureau requests 
that all seniors planning to register 
with the Placement Bureau for a 
series of interviews and vocational 
counsel and advice be present at a 
brief meeting to be held in the 
Faculty Room, Massachusetts Hall, 
Thursday evening, October 22, at 
7 p.m. The meeting will be brief 
but it is imperative that all seniors 
report at that time to obtain regis- 
tration information. 

Campus Move Feature 

In Colby's History 

[Continued from Page 7] 

Colby offers a summer school of 
languages, in which courses at the 
elementary, intermediate, and ad- 
vanced levels in French, German, 
Italian, Russian, and Spanish are 
taught in a very intensive pro- 
gram by qualified instructors. 

Colby's extra-curricular pro- 
gram is essentially similar, to 
Bowdoin's with heavy emphasis 
on musical activities. The athletic 
program includes intercollegiate 
contests in football, basketball, 
baseball, track, hockey, tennis, 
golf, and winter sports. Further- 
more, Colby has a complete and 
varied program of intramural 
sports for both men and women. 
There is a Physical Education re- 
quirement for a student's first 
two years, while attendance at the 
chapel services is not required. 
Has Only Six Fraternities 

Colby has but six fraternities 
for the 600 male students, of 
which three have chapters here. 
The six are Delta Kappa Epsilon, 
Zeta Psi, Delta Upsilon, Phi Delta 
Theta, Alpha Tau Omega, and 
Tau Delta Psi. 

Unlike Bowdoin, Colby insists 
that their undergraduates elect a 
major near the end of the fresh- 
man year. A small number of com- 
bined majors are also offered. 

But the outstanding fact about 
this Maine college is the story of 
how the college moved from the 
industrial heart of Waterville to 
the spacious campus atop May- 
flower Hill. Such national publica- 
tions as "The Saturday Evening 
Post", "Time", and Newsweek" 
magazines have published articles 
on this 20-year transformation 
within the past year. 

Began in 19S0 

It was in the year 1930 that 
conditions finally became intoler- 
able at Colby College. The increas- 
ing influx of industrial plants had 
reduced the once-spacious campus 
to an irreducible minimum of 
16 acres. Paint stores, Chinese 
restaurants, and body-end-fender 
shops were advancing on the de- 
fenseless college in a menancing 
pincers movement. Worse, the 
campus was virtually surrounded

Over twenty years later, more 
than $7,000,000 spent, 3J)OG,000 
man-hours consumed, 49,009 bar-

nearly 13,000 people, the dream 
became a reality, despite a de- 
pression, two wars, a recession, in- 
flation and assorted leaser disas- 
ters, including murder. 

Finally Finished in 1MB 

Finally, in the fall of 1953. the 
essential work was completed. 
However, Colby still needs a mu- 
sic-and-fine arts building, an ad- 
ministration building, and .many 
more assorted items. Although its 
endowment fund is steadily in- 
creasing and the general opera- 
tion can be said to be sound fin- 
ancial ground, Colby nevertheless 
owes one million dollars it has Had 
to borrow from time to time. 

As to the state football series, 
Colby has won 22 against Bow- 
doin, while losing 34 times. There 
have been eight ties in the 64- 
game rivalry. 

More than 15,000 persons

Kenneth Sills Discusses 
India's Role In World 

Says India Must Stay 
Neutral; Communists 
Active In Colleges 

By David O. Lavander '55 
"India and its Role in World 
Politics" was the topic of a talk 
given by former President of 
Bowdoin, Kenneth C. M. Sills in 
Smith Auditorium Friday night, 
Oct. 23. 

Speaking before a number of 
faculty and students, President 
Sills discussed the social condi- 
tions and economic conditions of 
India as he saw them during his 
recent stay in that country. He 
began his lecture with a descrip- 
tion of the problem India faces in 
feeding its millions of inhabitants. 
He stated that the country is 
"overwhelmed with people" and is 
largely dependant on U. S. aid in 
food and grain and must improve 
its archiac agricultural system. 
India Must Remain Neutral 
Only one-tenth of the 4,500,000 
inhabitants of New Delhi can 
read or write, and eighty percent 
of the entire population of India 
is illiterate, according t»> Presi- 
dent Sills. However, he was care- 
ful to distinguish between illiter- 
acy and ignorance, and he said 
that the country is fertile field 
for emotional doctrines. Britain 
failed to develop any program of 
general education, and because of 
the large number of illiterates and 
the constant threat of famine, In- 
dia feels that she must remain 
neutral in politics. 

There is some evidence in India 
of higher education. Many people 
do go to the University of New 
Dehli. President Sills was greatly 
impressed by this institution's 
agricultural and educational 
schools. New Dehli University is 
supported by the government. Its 
students are more politically 
minded than are their contempo- 
raries in America, said Dr. Sills. 
They are a frustrated group and 
a fertile field for Communism. 
Communist* Active There 
According to President Sills, 
Communists have been openly 
subsidising professors and carry- 
ing on an active propaganda cam- 
paign with movie and magazines. 
The President Emeritus stated 
that there is a strong possibility 
that India will go communist un- 
less America is more patient with 
her than has been the case. 

India's present and future stand 
in world politics is vitally impor- 
tant to this country, President 
Sills stated. He declared that 
Americans must get over the idea 
that every country should do as 
we do or as we tell them to do. It 
must be remembered, he said, that 
India would be a prize which the 
communist world would give 
much to take. 

President and Mrs. Sills have 
recently returned from a tour of 
the world which lasted six months 
and two weeks. In addition to 
India and Ceylon, they toured 
much of Europe. He is now giving ! 
a series of lectures in Maine on 
the impressions he received from 
the trip. He is also engaged in 
writing an account about his 
thirty-five years as President of 

Dougherty '46 Recovers 
From Crash Injuries 
Sustained This Summer 

Capt. William A. Dougherty '46 
of the U. S. Marine Corps Re- 
serves is recovering from serious 
injuries received in the crash near 
Cherry Point, North Carolina of 
an airplane he was piloting. 

Operating in' summer manue- 
vers with the Reserves, Captain 
Dougherty had engine failure di- 
rectly over a government housing 
project, but was able to land in 
the woods. He has a broken left 
foot and compression fractures of 
four of his spinal vertebra. At the 
Naval Hospital at Camp Lejeune, 
N. C, where he is convalescing, 
ten doctors who have worked on 
the case expect he will be out of 
his chest cast in a month and com- 
pletely recovered in six months. 

While recuperating from his ac- 
cident, the pilot hopes to sit in on 
the Naval Justice School in New- 
port, R. I. to get some experience 
in court martial. In February 
Captain Dougherty expects to re- 
enter law school to complete his 
preparation for a legal career. 
War Interrupts College 

In 1942 he entered Bowdoin, 
but at the end of his freshman 
year, Dougherty joined the Navy 
Air Force, from where he trans- 
ferred to the Marine Air Force 
late in the war. After World War 
n stopped, he returned to Bow- 
doin and graduated in February, 
1948. His major was government, 
with minors in history and Eng- 

Dougherty, a Sigma Nu, was on 
the football team, Dean's List, 
presided over the Student Council, 
and was Glee Club manager. He 
won the Andrew Allison Haldane 
Cup, awarded to a member of the 
senior class who has outstanding 
qualities of leadership and cha- 

Following his graduation from 
Bowdoin, Dougherty studied at 
Northwestern and Cornell Uni- 
versity Law Schools. He was re- 
called to active duty for the Kor- 
ean War, in which he served as a 
night pilot. 

New Condenser Will ■ 
Boost WB0A Range By 
Homecoming Week End 

WBOA, Bowdoin's radia sta- 
tion, will soon switch to high-ten- 
sion wires, which will greatly in- 
crease its power. 

Campus radio fans, up to now 
hearing many strange noises 
emitting from 820 on the dial, will 
soon be able to sit back and en- 
joy entertainment ranging from 
opera to football. 

This change - over to high ten- 
sion is no new idea. Two years 
ago, when the Cleveland Science 
Building was under construction, 
several high-voltage transformers 
were set up on campus, interfer- 
ring- with the range of WBOA, 
cutting it down as much as fifty 
per cent. 

Russell Washburne '50, submit- 
ted plans to the Central Maine 
Power Company which would per- 
mit WBOA to hook its radio 
power lines to those of the com- 
pany. After many changes in the 
plans, the permission was finally 

WBOA, however, did not have a 
condensor, and the plans were 
again halted. The increase in 
power was scheduled to be effec- 
tive in November, 1952, and al- 
ready a year has passed without 
any increase. 

General Electric, from whom 
the new condensor was ordered, 
has not been able to promise de- 
livery, so Russell Washburne has 
taken matters into his own hands. 
He has procured a condensor on 
his own, and before Bowdoin 
plays Maine on November sev- 
enth, the increase of power will 
have become effective, and the 
range of "the voice of Bowdoin" 
will be boosted to almost five

Brountas And Hoffmann 
Candidates For The 
Rhodes Scholarships 

Paul Peter Brountas of Bangor, 
Maine, and William Frederick 
Hoffmann of Manchester, N.H., 
were announced in Chapel today 
as Bowdoin College's candidates 
for Rhodes Scholarships at Oxford 
University in England. Alternate 
is Gordon Woodburn Stearns Jr., 
of West Hartford, Conn. AH are 
members of the Class of 1954 and 
all came to Bowdoin with pre- 
matriculation scholarships. 

Later this fall the two Bowdoin 
candidates will enter the Maine 
competition. Two men will be se- 
lected from the state to go on to 
the New England competition, in 
which four men will be chosen 
from twelve candidates, two from 
each state in the area. 

Provisions In Will 

Mr. Cecil Rhodes stated in his 
will some 50 years ago these Quali- 
ties which he wished each Rhodes 
Scholar to possess: 1. literary and 
scholastic ability and attainments; 
2. qualities of manhood, truth, 
courage, devotion to _duty, sym- 
pathy, kindliness, unselfishness and 
fellowship; 3. exhibition of moral 
force of character and of instincts 
to lead and to take an interest in 
his schoolmates; 4. physical vigor. 
as shown by interest in outdoor 
sports or in other ways. 

Brountas. the son of Mrs. Peter 
Brountas of 294 Main Street, Ban- 
gor, has been an undergraduate 
leader and an excellent student 
since he entered college in 1950 as 
an Alumni Fund Scholar. A Gov-

toon ball was rammed through 
for just one reason - to save foot- 
ball," Walsh told the business 
men. This move was necessitated 
because some colleges and univer- 
sities couldn't afford to go on 
paying two teams and two coach- 
ing staffs, he stated. "Don't let 
them tell you that the two pla- 
toon system was abolished to help 
small colleges," he said. "It was 
driven through because large uni- 
versities with semi-pro or pro 
teams couldn't afford to pay of- 
fensive and ' defensive teams and 
offensive and defensive coaching 
staffs. They were feeling the 
pinch at the gate and this is what 
they did to save football."

A conference with college auth- 
orities following last week's edi- 
torial on the rooming situation re- 
vealed that several of the alleged 
facts in the editorial were miscon- 
strued by its authqr. 

In the first place Massachusetts 
Hall is not responsible for making 
recommendations about rooming 
facilities for dates from girls col- 
leges. This is up to the authorities 
of the other colleges. 

Secondly, the list of rooms avail- 
able at the Union is placed there 
for student convenience. Union 
officials and the administration are 
both interested in serving the stu- 
dents in this respect, and are not 
working at cross purposes as was 
implied in the editorial. 

Coach Adam Walsh 

stated many of his views on col- 
lege football in general and the 
two platoon system in particular.

Colby Week End Made 
Festive Occasion By 
Students And Guests 

Whittier Field was turned back 
to the ground keepers as the spec- 
tators dispersed to the various 
fraternity houses to enjoy the 
pleasant thoughts about the first 
game of the State Series. The 
large crowd of students, dates, 
alumni and parents left the field 
where they had attempted to 
blend their voices for a weak 
Bowdoin cheer. 

The crowd scattered into the 
four winds only to find their 
weary way into some expecting 
house and the promise of a re- 
juvinated social life. These cock- 
tail parties rocked with festive 
song and spirit that might well 
have been used up at the game. 

The students were not alone in 
entertaining the parents- and alum- 
ni, but they found able assistance 
in the faculty who were also en- 
joying fraternity life. The faculty 
showed their ability to enjoy a so- 
cial gathering as well as an intel- 
lectual discussion with their ris- 
ing discipiles. 

When the chow bell rang, the 
cooks were overwhelmed by the 
large delegations that descended 
upon them crying to be fed. This 
mixture . of would - be cheerers 
found themselves seated next to 
representatives of Bates, Maine, 
and Colby. The spirit of the 
Maine Colleges prevailed through-

As the night wore on and the

Andrew Williamson 
Selected To Attend 
Industrial Congress 

Bowdoin College announced to- 
day that Andrew W. Williamson 
in, of Jefferson, Maine, has been 
selected to attend the 58th Annual 
Congress of American Industry, to 
be held December 2 to 4 under 
the auspices of the American As- 
sociation of Manufacturers. 

Associated Industries of Maine 
has made this award to Williamson 
as an all-expense-paid trip to New 
York City, where the Congress will 
be held at the Waldorf Astoria 
Hotel. He will be in New York 
from December 1 to December 5. 
Straight 'A' Man 

Williamson, who came to Bow- 
doin as the winner of an Alumni 
Fund Scholarship in 1951, is a ju- 
nior. He graduated from Lincoln 
Academy, where he was an out- 
standing student and athlete. At 
Bowdoin he has been a member of 
the varsity track squad and is also 
a starting back on the football 
team. A member of the Dean's List 
he has been a James Bowdoin 
Scholar for two years and on Oc- 
tober 15 received a specially in- 
scribed book from the College for 
having maintained a straight "A" 
record for two consecutive semes- 

Last year Williamson Won the 
Smyth Mathematical Prize and 
also three ROTC awards. These in- 
cluded the Maine Central Railroad

perior scholastic performance with 
demonstrated leadership; the 
Northeast Airlines award for the 
highest average attained by a sec- 
ond-year basic Course student in 
Military Science subjects; and the 
Bangor and Aroostook Railroad 
Company award for having dem- 
onstrated the highest qualities of 
leadership among cadets in the 
second-year basic course.

The Bates - Bowdoin football 
game, Alumni Dance, football 
rally, house displays, alumni 
luncheon, alumni council meeting, 
and fraternity initiations will be 
the highlights of the annual 
homecoming week end here Octo- 
ber 30 and 31. 

A crowd of around 10,000 is 
expected to see the Bowdoin - 
Bates game, the top event of the 
week end for many. Despite its 
loss last week to Maine, the Bates 
eleven is stronger this year than 
it has been in recent State Series 
contests. Bowdoin, however, will 
be a three touchdown favorite 
against the reserveless Bobcats. 

The week end will begin Friday 
afternoon when the freshman 
football team meets Higgins at 

Netherlands Professor 
Visits Bowdoin Campus 

To See Small College 

Bowdoin College had an unusual 
visitor last week. Seen around the 
campus with English Professor 
Herbert Ross Brown was Professor 
Reinard W. Zandvoort, who teach- 
es English at the University of 
Gronigen in The Netherlands and 
who is also Director of the Anglo- 
American Institute. 

Zandvoort is in the United 
States under the auspices of the 
State Deparfcnent and has been 
visiting at Phillips Exeter Acad- 
emy. Expressing a desire to see a 
small liberal arts college in action, 
he was told of Bowdoin. He arrived 
in Brunswick on the noon train, 
was met by Assistant to the Presi- 
dent Philip S. Wilder, and had 
luncheon in Moulton Union with 
Professor Brown. He then spent 
the afternoon touring the campus 
and learning about a typical small 
American liberal arts college. 

In the evening Professor Zand- 
voort was entertained at the Alpha 
Delta Phi house, where he was par- } 
ticularly interested to talk with J 
foreign students Jack Celosse, 
from The Netherlands, and Theo 
de Winter, from Argentina, form- 
erly from The Netherlands.

Vvh« "itts in a stared "matrimonial 
scamper" across the Dimple of the Wheatin 
rampuK. An unexpected plcntre in the 
campus pond followed failure of th« two 
Psi U frosh to obey a strong Wbeatoa 

annual "fraternity quests". When 
asked what quest they thought 
was most unusual the members of 
the several hazing committees 
had some very interesting stories 
to relate. 

John W. Albert and Eugene V. 
Helrol, both Alpha Delta Phi 
pledges, went to Bradford Junior 
College an gave speeches on "The 
Exercise and Development of the 
Female Body". Af'.^r finishing 
their oratory, they proceeded to 
Boston where they ran a mara- 
thon race, starting at the Boston 
Common and going through Fi- 
lene's Basement where tr»jy pur- 
chased • few items. Two other Al- 
pha Delta Phi pledges dressed as 
"h^ods" silently invaded Brad- 
ford Friday night and "hrjid-uc" 
a pretty and unsuspecting fresh- 
man. While one pledge held a 
"gun" on her, the other took pic- 
tures of the active proceedings. 

Psi Upsilon sent Brian H. Flynn 
and John E. Simonds to Boston's 
Park's Square whore they had to 
sr\\ a paint ; ng for $100. Both 
Flynn and Simonds were dressed 
as artists. One wou'd try to sell 
the painting while the other 
feigned painting the picture. One 
ctistorr.vr said that he was not in- 
terested in buying the painting 
but would l*ke to purchase the 
model. After unsuccessfully try- 
ing to sell the painting, they in- 
terviewed pjople on the Boston 
subway. Carsten T. Moller, foreign 
student and Psi Upsilon pledge, 
went to Colby Junior College

other through modern technology. 
"So far as ingenuity and engineer- 
ing can do it the confounding of 
the language has been undone." 
Professor Daggett says it still is 
a question whether, with all the 
miracles of modern science, those 
in the U. N. or those who were 
building the tower understood 
each other any better. 

Comparing the U. N. to a bridge 
between the East and West, Dag- 
gett stated, "Do not tear it down 
simply because some do not cross 
it. It is still a hope for the future." 

Daggett's plea for patience and 
understanding was reminiscent in 
some ways of Pulitzer Prize Jour- 
nalist Hodding Carter's message 
1 in This Week Magazine of Octo- 
| ber 18. Carter, also a Bowdoin 
graduate, told the story of Charles 
Lamb, the famous English essay- 

"I don't flke that man," Lamb 
once said. 

"But. Charles, you don't even 
know him," • friend remonstrated. 

"Of course I don't know him,'' 
Lamb answered. 'If I knew him, 
I couldn't dislike him."

Bowdoin Spirit Dead 

Letter To The Editor 

October 23, 195S 
Tb the edi tor^ - 

The ORIENT reporter who cov- 
ered Professor Greene's recent 
address to the James Doweoin 
Dav audience must have sUowsd 
his zeal to carry away his journal- 
istic restraint. He exceeded the 
injunction of the newsman's old 
credo "get the whole story" by 
not only reporting what was said 
on that occasion hut interpreting- 
it into what might have been said. 
The interpretation was at least 
superfluous. I feel that it was also 

The delivered address' closing 
minutes touched on what Dr. 
Greene called a present day trend 
in America, a lean which the proc- 
essor described as over-zealoue 
100 percent Americanism, Fas- 
cism — what some might consider 
manifestations of run-away Big 
Statism. Dr. Greene specified that 
he would mention no names, and 
he did not. The validity of his. 
comments and their applicability 
profited well from his decision. 

The reporter wrongly declared 
that Dr. Greene's remarks wese 
aimed specifically at Sen. Joseph 
R. McCarthy. But his mistake is. 
perhaps, excusable. After aU, 
when one hears of Fascism or ex- 
treme 100 percent Americanism 
today, one automatically envi- 
sages the Wisconsinite. One some- 
how manages to lose in the maze 
pf tangent opinions, creeds, alle- 
giances of pre-1941 days that 
form, the extreme 100 percent 
Americanism bred by the admi- 
rers of Franklin D. Roosevelt. 
Those were the days when the 
chap who suggested that America 
deal with all bettgerants without 
discrimination (and thus keep 
out of the blood-letting herself 
while enriching her coffers in the 
bargain) received the brand of 
"isolationist", "bundist", fascist", 
"nazi", "fifth columnist". Remem- 
ber? To be 100 percent American 
was to despise Germans for being 
Germans and Germany, and not 
merely to abhor despotism m Hit- 
ler and his national socialist re- 
gime. To deplore the idea of naz- 
ism alone wouldn't do, for some 
"deviationist" would soon see the 
essence of Hitler in Stalin, and, 
after all, Stalin was "marshall" of 
Russia, a democracy perhaps more 
democratic tha!h our own, you see, 
and a bulwark standing between 
freedom-loving peoples every- 
where and the tramp - tramp- 
tramp of hobnailed boots. No, to 

Bates College, Bowdoin's Second State Series 
Opponent, Noted For Strict Social Regulations 

By Thomas L. Spence '57 
The outstanding event of the always been opposed to the use of 

annual Homecoming week end will 
be the second game in Bowdoin's 
quest for the Maine State series 
against Bates. The visitors are 
the closest college to ours, but 
several important differences exist 
between Bowdoin and Bates Col- 

The moat notable difference is 
the fact that Bates is a non-fra- 
ternity college with most of the 
ntudwuti living on campus and 
taking their meals in the regular 
dfcuag rooms. The Bates catalog 
gives as their reason the fact that 
they aw "convinced by long ex- 
perience that a non-fraternity, 
non-sorority college provides a 
bread base for democratic living. 
The dormitory life and* extra-cur- 
ricular program of a small, non- 
fraternity college gives students a 
superior opportunity for the de- 
vetopment of personality, group 
responsibility, and powers of 

Making Regulations Strict 

Socially, Bates is known as a 
relatively dry college. The regula- 
tion of drinking is very strict 
compared to the average New 
England college. Among the dif- 
ferent regulations covering all 
phases of Bates college life, one 
of the most publicized and enforc- 
ed is that, quoting again from 
their catalog, "Bates College has 

all Ger- 


Last Saturday afternoon was indeed a perfect football 
setting. Everything was complete: fine fall afternoon, stands 
full of students and parents, our team favored to win, ' Yes, 
everything was complete, everything, that is, except something 
often thought of as an intricate part of any football game: 

Colby showed fine spirit and great enthusiasm in their 
cheers. Their cheering was strong and definite, a far cry from 
our pittle-pattling attempts to express our faith in and support 
of the Bowdoin football teami When the home team wins, 
when it's Fathers Weekend, and when the chances of taking 

another state series loom brigther by the minute, there seems to "** 10 ° P 61 ^ 6 " 1 American one must 
be little excuse for the poor showing of the Bowdoin cheering 
sections that was displayed last Saturday. 

There has been much criticism, and justifiably so, of the 
obvious and almost disgusting lack of organized support from 
the Bowdoin stands game after game. The disappointment in 
genuine college spirit (that old but nevertheless needed intangi- 
ble) was evidence everywhere in the remarks made by guests 
and visiting parents. What's happened, they asked, to the en- 
thusiastic grandstand supporter, the never-say-die spectator who 
emerges from the stands exhausted and hoarse > Is he a figure 
of the past? A rather silly and now (at last) forgotten ob- 
noxious character who disturbs the more important conversa- 
tions going on while the local team tries to smash its way for- 
ward? We think not. 

No, he is not dead or forgotten. Rather he is still there 
in the stands watching the games as he always did. Then why 
don't we hear from him? Why doesn't he stand up and yell 
himself green and wave his arms and jump up on his seat to 
gain a better look? Why doesn't he "wood"? And why 
doesn't he shout out the words of "Old Phi Chi" after a Bow- 
doin score? Where's the power and strength, of the old col- 
lege cheer? We don't quite know. We can only guess. 

Perhaps the modern Bowdoin student and (we do not 
hesitate to add) the modern weekend date feel just a little 
above roaring for the team they've traveled and paid to watch. 
Or maybe they feel sheepish about engaging in suck crude ac- 
tivity. Or possibly they're too preoccupied with thoughts of 
the party afterwards, or with the date sitting next to them. We 
sincerely hope these guesses are inaccurate.. We hope we are 
wrong. . Yet there are answers to* this unpopular problem, to 
this shameful situation. There are reasons why one member of 
the team stated that, because of the lack of student support, the 
team plays "for Adam, not the college." 

The cheerleaders are partly to blame: They display un- 
organization and oftentimes confusion. The cheers arc also 
partially responsible: they are somewhat uninspiring and are 
not«original. But the gieater part of the blame falls on the oc- 
cupants of the grandstand, those not-dead, not-silly, but also 
non-cheering people who should be the backbone of the after- 
noon's activity. Its their team, their college. And it's their 
duty (it should be their desire) to show team-support. 

Three days from now the last home game of the season 
will be played here against Bates, h wilt be Homecoming 
Weekend; we have a chance to take the state series; it should be 
quite an afternoon. Are the stands on the south side of Whit- 
tier Field going to echo with silence? Will the other side show 
us up with their roars and organized cheers? 

We shall see. 


wish to see Germany, 
mans, and all German 
wiped away. 

Not to be 100 percent American 
in those days before McCarthy 
meant to be shunned by neigh- 
bors, investigated by the F.B.I., 
pilloried by the press, and, as hap- 
pened in the long and farcial trial 
of 21 individuals, indicted for sedi- 
tion — this last for merely ad- 
vancing ideas unpopular with the 
New Deal rulers, with no ques- 
tion of subversive activities, party 
membership or anything of that 
sort being involved. As an inci- 
dental, note that there was no re- 
markable outcropping of societies 
and congresses, no inspired 
speech-making defending noble 
human principles, on the behalf of 
those peaple. Fram intellectuals, a 
deep, penetrating silence. 

Should one note also that al- 
most no contemporary liberal 
speaker worth his salt fails to in- 
clude at least a stab at McCarthy 
per speech, he must without doubt 
absolve the "Orient" writer of the 
charge of news-warping. It might 
benefit this reporter, however, to 
re-analyze Dr. Greene's remarks 
in the light of their face value 
alone, barring from his considera- 
tion aU the denunciations of Mc- 
Carthy as the evil genius of the 
decline and dissipation of tradi- 
tional American ideals. The de- 
cline began long before McCarthy 
yelled RED. Congressional inves- 
tigations, too, antedated Mc- 
Carthy; the procedings of a 
House committee, chairmaned by 
Alfred L. Bulwinkle, against Dr. 
William A. Wirt in the spring of 
1934 is worth checking, as is the 
press coverage of the affair. 
F.D.R beat McCarthy by miles in 
the race for 100 percentism. And 
the New Deal version of the 
thing posed an infinitely greater 
threat because it was backed by 
professional intellectuals and aca- 
demics who drummed up the ideal 
"all united behind Our Leader, 
100 percent" as the richest prize 
to which youth could aspire. 

And, I've been told by disillu- 
sioned old-timers, there was a 
breath of 100 percentism around 
1917. Some say things got so bad 
that if your nan*, sounded Ger- 
man you were considered an 
agent of the Kaiser until proved 
innocent. I don't know. But the

have been voiced long before Mc- 
Carthy got elected. Instead, our 
intellectuals, our new progress- 
ives of the 2Cs and 30's, channeled 
all their energies against those 
"reactionaries" who insisted on 
the need for preserving the iden- 
tity of the individual in society 
and the sanctity of his right to 
think far himself — and voice 
what he thought.

The article concerning Professor 
Greene's address in the last issue 
of the ORIENT was basically cor- 
rect, according to the highest 
standards of contemporary jour- 
nalism. The role of a newspaper, 
whether it be the NEW YORK 
TIMES or the ORIENT is much 
more than a mere presentation of 
the cold facts. It is becoming in- 
creasingly important for the news- 
paper to interpret these facts in- 
telligently. In this case, Professor 
Greene did not specifically mention 
any persons or groups, as he said 
he would not do. But he was ob- 
viously referring to someone, for 
no such vivid description of Ameri- 
can fascism can exist only in the 
imagination. Whether the ORIENT 
reporter was justified in naming 
McCarthy as the symbol of this 
political condition may be ques- 
tioned to the same extent that any 
other expert on any matter whose 
opinions are found throughout the 
American press can be questioned. 
His article was not written just 
from hastily copied notes during 
his actual address. WBOA recorded 
this speech word by word and the 
ORIENT reporter played it 6ack 
until he had a completely accurate 
word-by-word account of this ad- 

Following are the exact, undis- 
puted excerpts from the controver- 
sial part of the speech : 

"There resides the enemy, the 
far more mortal enemy than Rus- 
sia — it's the threat of American 
fascism . . . I'm going to name no 
persons or groups, but I'm going to 
describe it ... It is determined to 
exploit persons, if necessary ruth- 
lessly or cruelly . . . There will al-

or off the campus shall come into 
question, he Will be subject to dis- 
ciplinary action either by a stu- 
dent government organization or 
by the faculty." 

The total enrollmet of this 
small liberal arts college num- 
bers about 775, of which 450 ere 
men. Twenty-five per cent of the 
student body comes from Maine, 
40 per cent from Massachusetts. 
10 per cent from Connecticut, 5 
per cent from the other three New 
England states, and 30 per cent 
from outside New England, most- 
ly from New York and' New Jer- 
sey. The number of foreign stu- 
dents is unusually small, number- 
ing only five last year, from Ca- 
nada, Columbia, England, India, 
and Vict-Nara. 

About 20 Miles From Here 

Bates is located in Lewiston. 
only about 20 miles from the 
Bowdoin campus, making it the 
college nearest to Brunswick. Le- 
wiston, along with Hs sister city 
of Auburn, has some 65,000 peo- 
ple, easily the second biggest 
metropolis in the state. 

This co-ed institution will cele- 
brate its 90th anniversary next 
year. One of the newer of the New 
England colleges, it was founded 
in 1864 by Oren B. Cheney, a 
Dartmouth graduate. The college 
was named after Benjamin E. 
Bates, a Boston manufacturer and 
one of the founders of Lewiston, 
who gave one hundred thousand 
dollars for its establishment. Al- 
though by tradition Bates has 
been affiliated with the Baptists, 
it has always been non-sectarian. 

Endowment Only Two Million 

The endowment is rather small, 
only about two million; the cam- 
pus and buildings are valued 
slightly higher. The president is 
now Charles Franklin Phillips, 
the fourth such in Bates' history. 

Great emphasis is placed on ex- 
tra-curricular activities, partly 
because of the absence of frater- 
nities. The Student Council is the 
governing body for the male stu- 
dents, as is the Student Govern- 
ment Board for the women. Inter- 
collegiate sports include football, 
basketball, baseball, track, tennis, 
golf, and winter sports. An infor- 
mal intramural program is also 
provided. The different debating 
and dramatic groups are particu- 
larly active. • 

All students are required to be 
present at the stated chapel exer- 
cises and assemblies. The honor 
system is one of the educational 
bulwarks. All students must par- 
ticipate in a regular physical pro- 
gram for three years.

By Robert M. Hurst 'S4, OMENT 

In Tuesday's issue of the Boston Herald, Bob Hatch, coach of 
the hapless Bates eleven came forth with a new excuse for the in- 
ability of bis team to win games in the state series. Coach Hatch 
feels that the way the state series is now played off with Bowdoin 
playing Maine in the final is unfair. ..Year in and year out says 
Hatch they have the best teams and year in, year out they psay the 
last game. What this setup has to do with winning games is qaestion- 
able, but since Bates can't win games en the gridiron it seems they 
have to think up other excuses. The Bates coach has his own theories 
on this idea, however, and states that if Bowdoin played Maine first 
they'ed have to go all out, and we could get an accurate scouting 
report on them. And, continues Hatch they might get a little banged 
up the way we do when we play them. 

All three reasons mentioned by Hatch are ridiculous. If Bates 
obtained some good ball players and developed them as they do at 
Bowdoin and Maine they wouldn't have to bring out the crying towel 
every year. At Bates this year, reports Hatch, we had 31 out far 
football, there's now 2» on the squad. Of the 26, about 15 are first 
period ball players, the rest you use when you're way ahead or way 

Again whose fault is this? It certainly isn't the fault of Maine 
or Bowdoin. After Hatch degrades his own team in such a manner 
as he did in the Herald, it wouldn't surprise me if be eoukmt even 
field a team for the rest of the games. Let's face it, Bates couldn't 
lick Maine or Bowdoin if the two teams met five times a season. 
Hatch must feel that teams like WiHiems, Amherst, and Wesleyan 
play a softer game than Middlebury, Hefstra, and Mass. State which 
are on the Bates schedule. 

Hatch also points out that the financial angle enters into the 
argument. Since Bowdoin and Maine play far the state title every 
year who wants to see Bates play Colby. This is simple to answer, 
no one. 

It's up to Bates and Hatch to figure out an answer to all their 
troubles not the other schools in the state. And while we are at it 
"let's break up the Yankees." 

Looking at the statistics of the Maine-Bates game it is inter- 
esting, to note that Maine made a total of 413 yards net rushing 
while Bates made only a mere 57. Also of interest is the fact that 
Maine threw only three passes during the whole game and com- 
pleted all three of them. 

Dave Rogerson made the All-League hockey team last year for 
Bowdoin's lone place on the team. 

Bowdoin hockey and swimming this year is going to have one of 
the poorest seasons in many moons as the admissions office failure to 
get material for these two sports is beginning to show. What Bow- 
doin needs is about five ready made stars each year in the freshman 
classes to keep the standards of these sports up. This doesn't mean 
that Bowdoin has to go out and pay athletes to come to the school, 
but a little more concentration on weaning away ready made athletes 
from schools such as Williams and Amherst would help. 

For the fourth successive year Wesleyan defied the experts in 
their traditional dash with the strong Lord Jeffs as they held them 
to a 20-20 tie. Also in the line of upsets Tufts came out of nowhere 
to beat Williams 12-9.

Walsh went on to make some 
pointed criticisms of a well known

didn't he?" Walsh demanded. 
"He's not back in football now, is 
he? And I don't think you'll see 
him back in football again. We 
don't want that kind of coach hi 

"The first time that I met that 
coach I had the extreme pleasure 
of telling him that be was a fake." 

His opening statement, "Foot- 
ball is founded on deceit" obvious- 
ly startled the listeners. "You're 
continually trying to deceive the 
other fellow," he said. "But it's 
the same in business, and in poli- 
tics. Isn't advertising baaed on de- 
ceit, too? All products can't be 
the best they all claim to be. 

"The two main reasons for this 
deceit were' patty jealousy and the 
human desire to excel." 

"We all Hke to feel that we 
have become somewhat of a some-

"It is the eternal desire to excel

corners or go underneath, to suc-

Walsh died prosehying as one 
of the biggest dangers in modem 
college football. To support ms 
statement, he told of an illumin- 
ating and disheartening experi- 
ence he had when he was the head 
coach of the Los Angeles Rams. 
It seems a student had flunked 
out of a West Coast school. Walsh 
telephoned him and offered the 
boy, a halfback, $8,000 for the 
season. The boy laughed, however, 
and told Walsh he could go to a 
certain university, be offered 
more money and a convertible 
thrown in as an extra. 

Walsh told some stories of his 
personal relationships with the 
immortal Knute Rockne. claiming 
that Rockne's technical know- 
ledge of football was small com- 
pared to his ability to deal with 
human beings. "He'd get things 
out of you that you never dream- 
ed you had in you," Walsh said. 

Bowdoin's Coach said he did not 
like the idea of two goals from the 
field equalling a touchdown, be- 
cause football is essentially a 
team game. He also favored alter- 
ing the bonus after a touchdown 
to three points if achieved by 
rushing, two points H by forward 
passing, and one point if kicked.

Frosh Lose To Filton 
In Squeaker, 13-12, As 
Potter And Smith Star 

The old Bowdoin nemisis, the 
extra point, and the breaks of the 
game were the decisive factors in 
the Bowdoin Freshmen's defeat at 
the hands of a fighting Tilton team, 
13-12, on Friday at Pickard Field. 

The Frosh were given frequent 
opportunities to wrap up the game, 
especially in the thrill-packed 
fourth quarter, but each time it 
seemed that the' tide would turn, 
the unexpected happened. The 
Bowdoin attack, led by two bril- 
liant halfbacks, rolled up 12 first 
downs, as compared to Tilton's 
three; yet the last two inches could 
not be cracked. 

Del Potter Stands Out 

The outstanding all-around play- 
er on the field was Del Potter, the 
fleet Bowdoin halfback whose sen- 
sational broken-field running kept 
the locals in the game until the 
very last play. His spirited per- 
formance is even more remarkable, 
considering that he is close to be- 
ing the shortest and lightest player 
on the team. But on Friday, as in 
the first game, he. gave ample evi- 
dence that here is a first-class 
prospect for varsity stardom, his 
competitive spirit supplementing 
his offensive and defensive ability. 

Another Bowdoin speed merch- 
ant, Dick Smith, performed superb- 
ly in his first tilt before a home 
crowd. Once he got through the 
forward wall, he was. tough to stop. 
In each of the two Bowdoin TD's, 
he raced for the final yards. 
Tiltoa Talllee Early 

The first time the visitors, who 
had been previously winless in 
three starts, got possession of the 
ball, they quickly drove to the 
Bowdoin 1-yard line. Quarterback 
Virgil Hodges passed to Halfback 
Clark Gay for 30 big yards in the 
43-yard march. An inspiring goal- 
line stand withstood the Tilton at- 
tack, but as soon as Bowdoin re- 
gained possession, they fumbled the 
ball back to Tilton. The visitors 
didn't waste this second opportuni- 
ty, with George Carrigan taking 
the ball over. Fritz Prior split the 
uprights for the seventh point 
which eventually meant the ball 

Bowdoin received the kickoff and 
rolled all the way to pay dirt, a 
distance of 67 yards. Dick Smith 
accounted for gains of 10, 11 and 
12 yards, the last adding the first 
Bowdoin touchdown. The conver- 
sion attempt was easily blocked.

powerful running attack as they 
easily vanquished undermaned 
Colby, 25-7 in the opener of the

Bowdoin's surge through in-

plenty of defensive punch as welL

hosts smashed down to the Tilton 
14, where an offside penalty nulli- 
fied Dick Dremzek's run into the 
end zone. The rest of the quarter 
was consumed in a battle of inter- 
cepted passes. 

Bowdoin captured the lead mid- 
way in the third quarter by driv- 
ing 44 yards. Successful passes to 
John Snow and Al Lanes set the 
stage for Smith's buck over from 6 
inches out. A bad pass from cen- 
ter prevented the placekiek; in- 
stead, Dremzek tried a pass which 
just missed, keeping the score 12-7 
in favor of Bowdoin. 

The fired-up visitors grabbed the 
kickoff on their own 42 and swept 
goalward without letup. Gay raced 
the last 32 yards without a Bow- 
doin defender touching him on the 
second play of the final quarter. 
The PAT try failed. 

Bowdoin Keeps Trying 
The rest of the exciting game 
saw Bowdoin trying desperately to 
punch over what would have been 
the winning score. Del Potter 
caught the ensuing kickoff, faked 
brilliantly to the other safety man, 
while most of the opposition ignor- 
ed him, he raced 32 yards all the 
way to the Tilton 4S. with the last 
man between him and the goal- 
line stopping him. A minute later, 
Potter caught a pass while lying 

on the ground, for a first down on 
the Tilton 30. With Mike Coster 
and Logan Hardie doing the bulk 
of the carrying, Bowdoin advanced 
to within exactly two inches of the 
goal-line before losing the ball on 

loose deep in the end zone, with 
the Bowdoin line sweeping in for 
the kill. If Bowdoin recovered, it 
would be the winning touchdown; 
if a Tilton man recovered and was 
tackled in the end zone, it would 
be a safety and a Bowdoin victory. 
But the impossible happened — 
Gay somehow managed to run it 
out of the endzone and u,p to the 
10 for a first down. 

But the Freshmen were not 
through yet. They forced their op- 
ponents to kick. Again Potter re- 
turned; this time, he zigzagged his 
way through almost the entire 
Tilton squad to the 11, within easy 
distance of that all-elusive TD. 

A couple of running plays and a 
penalty carried the desperate at- 
tack to the one, with seconds to go. 
But on the next play, Bowdoin was 
penalized 15 big yards back to the 
16, where an incomplete pass end- 
ed the duel. 

ing the right play on fourth down, 
making the distance three times 
in four first half situations near 
the Colby goal. 

Cosgrove tossed in some timely 
blocks and was his alert self on 
pass defense, running one inter- 
ception back for a score. 

Despite loose baH handling in 
the first half, Colby showed 
enough here and there to indicate 
that it would be a fair ball club 
with all its key men in shape and 
a little more bench support.

Under the direction of varsity 
tennis coach, S. A. Ladd Jr., most 
of the first-round matches of the 
Fall Tennis Tournament have been 
completed, and the tournament is 
well into the second round. 

It is imperative that all matches 
be arranged and played promptly. 
Coach Ladd warns that any player 
who cannot play when asked by an 
opponent, must forfeit the match,

Zetes, ARUs Lead 
In Football Leagues; 
DKEs Undefeated 

The league standings in the in- 
terfratemity football circuit have 
'not been altered over the past 
week, with the ARU's and Zetes 
maintaining the pace in their res- 
pective leagues. 

Mention should first be made 
about the fabulous passing combi- 
nation of "Togo" Plasse and Ted 
Kenney of Kappa Sig. This 
tandem has accounted for nine 
touchdowns so far this season and 
has played havoc with opposing 
pass defenses. If Kenney is allow- 
ed to roam freely in the foe's ter- 
ritory from hereon, the Kappa 
Sigs may well oust the ARU's 
from their top position in League 
"A". The Kappa Sigs romped over 
the Delta Sigma club 21-0 to 
move into a second place tie with 
the latter. 

In other battles in this league 
the Delta Sigs handed the ATO's 
a 33-21 defeat as .Nick Moldaver 
tallied twice, and the winless Chi 
Psi's continued their streak being 
subdued by the ATO's 26-7 and by 
the AD's 37-0. Tom Winst and Bill 
Foster each contributed three 
touchdowns for their fraternities. 
In the league's other contest, the 
ARU's edged the Psi Us 26-19 
with Al Worksman leading the at-

Behind The Ivy Curtain 

By David R. 
Miss Magda Gabor, who was re- 
cently described by a Harvard man 
**, "Not from Hungary," visited 
Wellesley soon after her appear- 
•*** on the Harvard Law School 
*V>rum. The Wellesley News dis- 
covered that Miss Gabor was 
amaaed at the social freedom en- 
joyed by Wellesley girls. She had 
attended a Swiss school where men 
were never allowed on campus, 
even on Sunday afternoon. Girla 
from a nearby school were invit- 
ed as dancing partners for their 
social gatherings, she explained. 
She also stated that she found Ber- 
muda shorts unflattering, though 
very popular on girls' college cam- 
puses. Although she enjoys wear- 
ing blue jeans, her sister Zsa Zsa 
refuses to wear them she added. 
Perils of Pauline 
From the same newspaper we 
learned of a new "get acquainted 
i»t. ^Vellesley sophomores init- 
iated a Spook 
Spree to help 
strengthen the 
ties between 
themselves and 
the freshmen. 
Entertainme n t 
was highlighted 
by an old fasn^ 
. ioned m e 1 o - 
drama, "Perils of a Wellesley 
Freshman." The cast included the 
villain, a Princeton man who t teals 
the posture picture of a poor naive 
freshman. The "damsel in distress" 
is finally rescued by a Harvard Med 
student who is "above all this." 
Later a sophomore quartet praised 
"the joys of being a freshman." 

Smith students, reading through 
old newspapers, discovered that 
Smith girls in 1931 consumed over 
a hundred bushels of apples a 
month; that they devoured enough 
oranges to supply the 70,569 in- 
habitants of the Hebrides with 10 
oranges apiece, and that they used 
up enough butter to have spread on 
17.136,000 slices of bread. Faced 
Vrith these figures as well as the 
most recent available, Smith stu- 
dents have concluded that they 
are eating more than ever. 
Dum Dee Dum Dum 
College papers, while often dif- 
ferent, depend heavily on similar 
articles and features every week. 
For instance, every paper publishes 
a poll from time to time. This 
week's batch disclosed opinions on 
such subjects as "The sex life of 
oysters," "Keg Beer," and "Should 
the College continue to finance the 
campus humor magazine." One in- 
terview noted that this conclusive- 
ly proves that 'polls are here to 
stay." Conducting an informal poll 
on my own, I discovered that Drag- 
net is also here to stay. Approxi- 
mately one out of five college pa- 
pers are now running columns by 
that or similar names. The Colby 
Echo has come up with FAG NET 
West Virginia College uses a 
straight DRAG-NET head for a 
campus gossip column, some 
Wheaton girls used the theme to 
fill up a feature called BY THE 
WAY . ... they discovered some- 
thing under a chair . . . the ORI- 
ENT used the idea to herald the 
Wheaton article. Four old grads 
were depicted in a B.U. cartoon 
humming dum dee dum dum. And 

Anderson '55 

so it seems that college papers pre- 
fer DRAGNET three to one over 
other leading nets. 

The Bard 

From the Minnesota Daily comes 
proof that Shakespeare's writings 
can apply to just about anything. 
Here's what Will had to say about 

Studying in the Library: "More 
light,- you knaves; and turn the 
tables up, and quench the fire, the 
room has grown to hot." Romeo 
and Juliet 

Cramming at 3 a.m.: "How 
weary, stale, flat and unprofitable 
seem to me all the uses of this 
world." Hamlet. 

Cramming at 7 a.m.: "It is not 
for your health thus to commit 
your weak condition to the raw 
cold morning." Julius Caesar. 

Teacher hands out tests: "O most 
pernicious woman! O villain, vil- 
lain, smiling, damned villain." 

Composition exam: "Why I will 
fight with him upon this theme un- 
til my eyelids no longer wag." 

Orange Juice 

The Union College Concordiensis 
turned away from its editorial 
pages and went, instead, to the 
street corner in waging a recent 
campaign against the high cost of 
orange juice at the school dining 
hall. Operation Orange Squeeze 
found the staff .members selling a 
standard sized cup of juice for a 
nickel, ten cents lower than the 
school price. In four days of oper- 
ation the editors sold more than 
1150 cups to Union students. Keep- 
ing close account of expenses, the 
group discovered that they netted 
a twenty dollar profit from the 
sixty dollars they received. The 
stand was set up outside the din- 
ing room and offered both counter 
and curb service. 

Channel 4 

The University of Bridgeport in 
cooperation with the Bridgeport 
Broadcasting Company will in- 
augurate a series of television pro- 
grams of regular college courses. 
Credit will be given to those who 
pass the courses in "Personal Ad- 
justment in Family Living" and 
"Living with Literature." 

The next two squibs are reprint- 
ed from the Wheaton News. 

This has been the week for mis- 
understandings, it seems. There 
was the sophomore the other night 
at dinner who was all enthused 
while describing her week end at 
a well-known men's college, until 
someone asked her where she stay- 
ed. Obviously reluctant, she named 
the hotel, and said apologetically, 
"It's not very good I'm afraid." 
Then she brightened and added 
eagerly, "But it's getting better all 
the time." 

This one happened in the faculty 

dining room, when the student 

waitress approached a table to 

! serve the meal. The people at her 

I table were intent, staring at one 

[ member's glass of water, on top of 

which floated a small copper box. 

Finally in awestruck tones, the 

waitress breathed, "Will it do 

something?" The spell was broken; 

the owner of the box looked up, 

startled, then said, "Heavens, no! 

I'm just trying to get the price tag 

off the bottom." 

Bates College Unusual 
In Several Respects 

(Continued from Page 2) 
Curriculum Reorganized 

In 1945 Bates began its now fa- 
mous Bates Plan of Education. It 
completely reorganized the entire 
college curriculum so as to better 
prepare its students for a sucess- 
ful life. Its three goals are as fol- 

"1. To provide each student 
with an understanding and ap- 
preciation of the main fields of 
human knowledge. 2. To give 
each student a sequence of liberal 
arts and science courses that lay 
the foundation for a successful 
career. 3. To help each student 
develop attitudes and abilities 
without which no amount of 
knowlege Can produce an educat- 
ed and worthwhile individual." 
Many Courses Required 

Accordingly, a large number of 
courses, called core courses, are 
required of every student. But 
they are taken over each of the 
four years, not just in the first 
couple of years. Probably the most 
unusual course is the four semes- 
ter sequence known as Cultural 
Heritage, required of all juniors 
and seniors.

The complexion of League "B" 
has changed not at all. There 
were only two games played last
